Indictments issued in armed robbery, assault

GREENVILLE — A Quinlan teenager has been indicted in connection with a reported armed hold-up and sexual assault at a downtown Quinlan business.

The Hunt County grand jury Friday indicted Jamey Justin Smith, 18, on one count each of aggravated robbery and aggravated sexual assault. Smith is being held in custody at the Hunt County Jail in lieu of a total of $400,000 bond.

Smith was charged in connection with a reported robbery at gunpoint of an antique store on Main Street in Quinlan on the morning of January 18. An employee of the business also indicated she was sexually assaulted by Smith during the incident and that Smith threatened her life.

Quinlan Police Department officers later took Smith into custody during a traffic stop, after another occupant of the vehicle said Smith had told him he had committed the crime and had thrown the handgun into a nearby ditch. The weapon allegedly used in the robbery was also recovered.

Both the aggravated robbery and aggravated sexual assault charges are first degree felonies, each punishable upon conviction by a maximum sentence of from five to 99 years to life in prison and an optional fine of up to $10,000.

No arraignment hearings on the indictments had been scheduled as of Friday.
