Preliminary hearing continued for defendant with felony charges

By Emily D. Williams
A Batesville man had a preliminary hearing date continued for charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon during Batesville Municipal Court held Wednesday.

Jeffery S. Young, 143 Ford Rd., Batesville, has a MDOC hold and additional charges of possession of controlled substance with intent. 

Officer Charlie Tindall explained to Judge Bill McKenzie that the drug charges were all from the same incident on December 21 but they didn’t get the warrant on the drug charges until the morning of court because they were awaiting results from the crime lab.
