Two Anna Res­i­dents Indict­ed for Deliv­ery of Cannabis


Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Nel­son A. Diaz (DOB 11-27-1956) and Pat­sy A. Diaz (DOB 06-29-1955), both of 513 South Street in Anna, were indict­ed on Wednes­day June 9 by a Union Coun­ty Grand Jury – each on three (3) counts of Deliv­ery of Cannabis, two (2) counts being Class 3 Felonies and one (1) count being a Class 4 Felony, and on one (1) count of Pos­ses­sion of Cannabis with Intent to Dis­trib­ute, a Class 3 Felony.  Nel­son and Pat­sy Diaz are alleged to have sold cannabis from the South Street res­i­dence on mul­ti­ple occa­sions dur­ing the month of May 2011.


Nel­son and Pat­sy Diaz were arrest­ed on May 25, 2011 as the Union Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office and US Mar­shals Ser­vice exe­cut­ed a search war­rant and arrest war­rants at the South Street residence.


The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
