Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that John R. Robin­son (DOB 10/19/1966) and Judith R. Robin­son (DOB 01/15/1966), both of 100 Wal­nut Street, Apt 161, Cob­den, Illi­nois, have been charged with one (1) count of Par­tic­i­pa­tion in Metham­phet­a­mine Pro­duc­tion, a Class X Felony, one (1) count of Pos­ses­sion of Metham­phet­a­mine Man­u­fac­tur­ing Mate­ri­als, a Class 2 Felony, and one (1) count of Pos­ses­sion of Metham­phet­a­mine Man­u­fac­tur­ing Waste, a Class 2 Felony.  The two are alleged to have engaged in the man­u­fac­ture of more than 15 grams of metham­phet­a­mine in rur­al Union Coun­ty between March and Sep­tem­ber of 2012.

Both were arrest­ed on Sep­tem­ber 25, 2012 by Union Coun­ty Sher­iff Deputies and are being held at the Jack­son Coun­ty Jail in Mur­phys­boro on $250,000 bond.

The UnionCountyState’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.
