Here are the current entries for the Greene County Jail Log on October 14th, 2021. As always, please keep in mind that allegations are simply that until proven otherwise in a court of law; therefore, the person(s) shown as arrested for the charges listed should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
Benjamin Lewis Edwards, age 44, of Bloomfield began his sentence for operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction, a Level 6 felony. Under the plea agreement, Judge Dena Martin handed down a sentence of 1 year 180 days in jail with 1 year 150 days suspended and 6 days of jail credit applied. Ashley Dyer was appointed to represent the Defendant at the County’s expense.
