NORWICH – Two suspected drug dealers, an accused rapist and a pair of alleged home invaders were among those indicted by a Chenango County grand jury last week.
At the proceedings, the Chenango County District Attorney’s Office presents evidence against those they wish to prosecute and the jury decides if there is enough reasonable cause to charge a person.
• Twenty year-old Curissa M. Jenkins of 31 Hickok Ave., Norwich, was indicted on three drug- related felonies and a misdemeanor.
Court documents said Jenkins was indicted with third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (a Class B felony) for allegedly having 2.88 grams of cocaine. She was indicted with third degree criminal possession of marijuana (a Class E felony) for allegedly having 11 ounces of marijuana.
Jenkins’ third count on the indictment was for third degree criminal mischief over allegations that she kicked and damaged a Norwich Police vehicle door and window following her appearance in court March 27, causing $995.71 in damages. The arraignment took place the day of Jenkins’ arrest and she was visually upset at the proceeding, at one point shouting at police.
The final count filed by the grand jury charged Jenkins with second degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia, claiming that two digital scales and a number of Ziplock plastic bags found at her residence were used in the “dispensing of narcotic drugs,” it stated.
