MITCHELL BRANCH - A Red Jacket native was placed under arrest on Friday for trespassing and domestic assault after law enforcement was dispatched to the home of her mother, who had placed a call for help to Mingo County 911.
According to the criminal complaint filed by Mingo County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. A. Farra and Deputy M.J. Miller, Jessica Huffman, 26, was at the Mitchell Branch residence of her mother, refusing to leave after being told to vacate the premises.
The complaint further stated that the defendant allegedly became belligerent with her mother, threatening to “burn her house down” and also threatened her with bodily harm.
Huffman was arrested and arraigned before Magistrate Dee Sidebottom, who set bond at $2,000. She was incarcerated in the Southwestern Regional Jail at Holden, after being unable to meet bond requirements.
