Court records allege that Joshua Young smuggled methamphetamine into the jail in a body cavity. Once he was in a cell, according to the report, Young allegedly distributed the methamphetamine to 17 other individuals.
The cases are set for preliminary hearings on Thursday, April 11 in front of Judge Karen Thomas.
Among those charged with possessing the drug include:
Alexander Lavalle, II
The Public Advocate’s office has been charged with representing these individuals.
The Campbell County Public Advocate would only be allowed to represent one of the above individuals due to conflict of interest. It is unclear how the Public Advocate is going to manage to find representation for the remaining 17 people.
