WCH man’s trial postponed


A Washington Court House man’s trial originally scheduled for Thursday has been continued until Aug. 14.

Jeromie M. Tackett, 36, of 513 Earl St., was arrested on March 26 after City of Washington police officers responded to a burglary at 739 Gregg Street. An anonymous caller advised dispatch that a male with a gray jacket and beard was attempting to get into the house through a side window, according to officer reports.

Tackett was indicted in April on one count of violating a protection order (one or more priors), a felony of the fifth degree.

He pleaded guilty in September of 2014 on one count of violating a protection order, a felony of the fifth degree, and one count of domestic violence, a felony of the fourth degree. The court sentenced him to seven months in prison. Tackett was awarded 67 days jail time credit for time spent in custody.

Tackett had just been released Feb. 20.

A reason for the trial continuance was not provided.
