Several Indicted on Drug Charges in Davison County

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that four individuals have been indicted by a Davison County Grand Jury on drug related charges. Case stemmed as a result of a search conducted at parolee Jared Nespor’s residence.

 

“Parole is a time and opportunity for individuals that have made mistakes to demonstrate that they want and can be productive and law abiding citizens. It is not a get out of jail free card, and continued criminal violations and conduct while on parole will not be tolerated,” said Jackley.
