36-year-old Sheridan Resident Jason Lyles had his initial appearance in Sheridan County Circuit Court Thursday. Lyles is charged with two felonies; Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Methamphetamine; and Endangering Children. Law Enforcement arrested Lyles on August, 17th at his residence in Sheridan after the completion of an almost month long investigation. Court Documents state that Lyles was allegedly selling methamphetamine out of his home in the presence of his two children.
Judge John Sampson continued the $15,000 cash only bond. Delivery of a Controlled Substance is punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $25,000, or any combination of both. Endangering Children is punishable by no more than 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine, or any combination of both.
A case review was held for Sheridan resident James Mack, who's charged with Destruction of Big Game and Cruelty to Animals. Mack was arrested earlier this month for beating a fawn to death with a shovel in the front yard of his home on Thurmond Avenue. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Dianna Bennet said that there will be one more formal case review between her and Defense Attorney Clay Jenkins. If the matter isn't settled after that final case review, Bennett stated that the case will go to trial.
