By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Two former Wise County Jail employees are facing felony charges, accused of stealing drugs meant for inmates.

Jina Stone Jernigan, 45, of Boyd and Rachel Nicole Flake, 33, of Bridgeport were both arrested July 8 for fraudulent possession of a controlled substance. Jernigan posted $5,000 bond and Flake posted $10,000 bond and were released. The two were indicted June 26 by a Wise County grand jury.

According to the indictment, the two were in possession of hydrocodone they obtained through their duties at the jail.

Wise County Sheriff David Walker said the two were in charge of handing out medication to inmates during the time of the alleged offense around Dec. 12 of last year. Walker said both have resigned from the Sheriff’s Office.
