2 Slater men charged with drug possession

Monday, January 25, 2010

Two Slater men are in custody at Saline County Justice Facility following a traffic stop Sunday, Jan. 24, near Rosehill Road and Business Highway 65.

Christopher M. Day, 30, and James W. Parrish, 20, were arrested, and each was charged with one count of class C felony possession of methamphetamine when the vehicle they were riding in was stopped for a lane violation.

Day and Parrish, who were passengers in the vehicle, could serve from two to seven years in Missouri Department of Corrections if convicted of the charges.

Day has previous convictions for driving while intoxicated and drug possession; Parrish has previous convictions for driving while intoxicated and assault.

Charges contained in reports provided by law enforcement officials are not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting charges must be presented before a jury, whose duty is to determine if the accused is guilty or not guilty of the charges.

  • Seriously this is not the 1st time for Mr. Day. This just makes no sense!!! Put these sort of people somewhere so they are not out on the streets. Whatever happened to the days when Daddy Bush was in office and there people were locked up for 15-20 years, really this is just RIDICULOUS!! I wonder if he has even been out a year yet??

  • It all depends on who you are. I know other people who was convicted for more than that and got nothing. Not once, not twice but three different times. If you have a good name you get off easy.....so Im sure these two will have to pay when others didnt! Theres Marshall court system for you!
