Putnam Jail Inmates Headed Back To Court

Three Putnam County jail inmates are headed back to court this month -- after allegedly causing disturbances inside the facility.  Authorities say the incidents are unrelated.  A January 24th court date has been set for 33-year-old Christopher Garrett of Monterey, charged with vandalism for allegedly destroying several jail uniforms while he was serving time for non-payment of child support.  Meanwhile, 42-year-old Weylin Trent Strode of Livingston was charged with aggravated assault after allegedly biting a corrections officer during a confrontation earlier this month. And three counts of aggravated assault were brought against 36-year-old Vernon Dwain Wilson of Monterey after he struggled with officers and threatened them with sharp edge of a broken plastic drinking cup. He goes to court January 31st.
