Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Ash­ley N. Wilkins (DOB 12/26/1984) of 702 Coun­try Vil­lage Dri­ve in Anna and Roger A. Rowan (DOB 06/08/1982) of 7815 US High­way 51 South in rur­al Don­go­la have each been indict­ed by the Union Coun­ty Grand Jury on one (1) count of Unlaw­ful Crim­i­nal Drug Con­spir­a­cy, a Class 1 Felony.  Wilkins and Rowan are alleged to have con­spired with a third per­son to dis­trib­ute hero­in from the res­i­dence locat­ed at 115 Kohler Street in Anna between Jan­u­ary and August of this year.  Each is being held at the Jack­son Coun­ty Jail in Mur­phys­boro on $150,000 bond.  The Indict­ments fol­low an inves­ti­ga­tion by the Union Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office.

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.
