79-Year Old Facing Drug Charges, Again

A 79-year Booneville old man who is serving a 10-year probation sentence for a drug conviction, was arraigned on drug charges again last Friday.

Jerry W. Reynolds was formally charged last week with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, with both allegedly occurring within 1,000 feet of a church, which allows for up to a 10-year in prison enhancement.

According to court documents, Reynolds is accused of selling four pills believed to be oxycodone on two separate occasions in early April to a confidential informant in an operation conducted by the Arkansas State Police and the 15th Judicial District Drug Task Force.

Reynolds was represented Friday by Paul Effurd, who plead not guilty on his client’s behalf and requested that Reynold’s not be required to approach the bench because he uses a walker. Fifteenth Judicial District Judge Jerry Don Ramey approved the request.

Ramey set a pre-trial date of Nov. 1 for Reynolds and a trial date of Nov. 15.

Reynolds was charged in 2011 with a similar crime and plead guilty to one count of delivery of a controlled substance and was sentenced in January of 2012 to a decade of probation and $1,025 in costs, fees and assessments.
