Last week the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department obtained information that 33 year old Jimmy Jones of Plymouth had failed to maintain a current address, as required as part for being a registered Sex Offender.
County Police Officer Les McFarland located Jimmy Jones on Saturday (9/17/16) and arrested him for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, a Level 6 Offense. A case report will be completed and forwarded to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Prosecutor’s Office for review and formal charges being filed.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
