Three arraigned on sealed indictments alleging heroin sales


Four people were arraigned Tuesday in Jefferson County Court on sealed grand jury indictments, including three containing allegations of heroin sales. Arraigned were:

Wesley B. Butler, 20, of 1708 Ohio St., Apt. 32, who is charged with three counts each of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

It is alleged that he had and sold heroin twice on the same mid-May day and then again the following day within the county. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $20,000 bail.

Robert W. Murphy Jr., 47, of 117 High St., who faces two counts of each charge. It is alleged that he sold heroin in early May and cocaine in late May. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was held at the PSB on $25,000 bail.

Phillip A. Mono, 35, of 309 Moulton St., who faces single counts of each charge. It is claimed in the indictment that he sold heroin within the county in mid-May. He, too, entered not guilty pleas and was sent to the PSB on $7,500 bail.

Also arraigned was Denise M. Bradley, 42, of 1014 Boyd St., who is charged with second-degree bail jumping for allegedly absconding from the supervision of Drug Court. She was referred to the program that is designed to serve as an alternative to incarceration in April 2011 after pleading guilty to third-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree falsifying business records. She admitted that she forged a prescription and presented it to a Watertown pharmacy in an attempt to obtain a controlled substance to which she was not entitled.

According to the indictment, she did not show up for a May 2011 court appearance and has been absent since. At the time she entered the program, it was agreed that if she was unsuccessful, she faced a two- to four-year state prison sentence. She pleaded not guilty to the newest charges and was sent to the PSB on $30,000 bail.
