Probation for Wayne County men

Two Corydon men arrested in December of 2012 and charged with multiple drug offenses were recently sentenced to suspended prison in Wayne County.

Roy Leonard Wilcox, Jr., 44, was sentenced May 30 by Judge Martha L. Mertz to a fine, 10 years in state prison, all suspended to three years probation, with conditions on the criminal charge of controlled substance violation, D felony with an offense date of Nov. 27, 2012. The original charge was possession of a firearm. For the charge of failure to affix a tax stamp, Judge Mertz sentenced Wilcox, Jr., to five years in state prison, all suspended, also with an offense date of Nov. 27, 2012.

Judge Mertz May 30 dismissed the count, ongoing criminal conduct, unlawful activity, B felony, with an offense date of Nov. 27, 2012.

Wilcox, Jr. owes $1,487.50 to the state.

Sidney Louis Marsh, 49, was sentenced by Judge Mertz on June 3 to 10 years in state prison, all suspended, to three years probation with conditions and a fine on the charge of controlled substance violation, D felony, with an offense date of Nov. 27, 2012. Marsh entered a voluntary, negotiated guilty plea to the charge.

The court June 3 dismissed one count of ongoing criminal conduct, unlawful activity, B felony and failure to affix a tax stamp, D felony, both with an offense date of Nov. 27, 2012.

Marsh owes $1,527.50 for this case.

Approximately four months earlier Marsh was sentenced in Wayne County to an illegal drug offense.

This time on Feb. 5 it was Wayne County Judge David L. Christensen who sentenced Marsh to a fine and credit for time served in jail for the charge of possession of a controlled substance, serious misdemeanor, with an offense date of Nov. 20, 2012.

The original charge was a D felony controlled substance violation.

Marsh owes $1,084.83 for this case.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s office filed the original criminal complaint against Wilcox, Jr. and Marsh on Nov. 27, 2012. The complaint states Wilcox, Jr. and Marsh, after a search of their residence in Corydon, were arrested and charged with 11 illegal drug charges: Each man was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana while in possession of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a public school, D felony; failure to affix a drug tax stamp, D felony; ongoing criminal conduct, B felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia, simple misdemeanor. Then Wilcox was charged with possession of meth, hydrocodone and zolpidem, all aggravated misdemeanors.
