Jury finds drug dealer guilty

BATESVILLE — A Ripley Superior Court jury found a Batesville man guilty of two felonies April 11, according to Ripley County prosecutor Ric Hertel.

Brian W. Bradley, 52, Batesville, was convicted of possession of marijuana over 30 grams with the intent to deliver and possession of marijuana over 30 grams, Class D felonies.

The case was investigated by multiple police agencies with the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office being assisted by the Batesville Police Department and Indiana State Police. Chief Deputy prosecutor Ryan King presented the case on behalf of the state.

The jury heard evidence that Bradley possessed over 300 grams of marijuana together with drug paraphernalia used for the distribution of marijuana in his apartment located on Walnut Street in downtown Batesville.

RCSO Detective Abe Hildebrand testified as to the vast amount of marijuana and marijuana-related contraband discovered in his apartment. A young female revealed that she received marijuana from Bradley on approximately a half dozen occasions. She also testified that her friends frequently bought marijuana from him. Another male said that Bradley sold marijuana to him and his girlfriend on several occasions.  

Following the jury verdict and upon King’s motion, Judge Jim Morris remanded Bradley to the Ripley County Jail.

Hertel thanked the jury for their service and further commented, “The evidence showed that Mr. Bradley was selling marijuana to many people, including young people, in our community. Now Mr. Bradley can spend some time thinking about what he has done.”
