GREENCASTLE -- A trial date has been set for a Greencastle woman charged with four felony counts of battery has been set.
Treva J. Jackson, 35, will go to trial on Feb. 24 if her case proceeds to that point. Her final pretrial conference has been set for Feb. 4, and any court orders or plea agreements in the case must be filed by that date.
Jackson was arrested Sept. 19 in connection with an incident that took place at Old Toppers Tavern, Greencastle, in which she allegedly pulled a knife and injured four people with it.
According to court records, Jackson and another patron at the bar, Jessica Phares, exchanged words, then punches. Three men allegedly jumped into the fray and were hurt.
Phares' boyfriend, Scott Hoover, is currently incarcerated in connection with the Dec. 15, 2007 prescription drug overdose death of Jackson's teenage son Dietrich Jackson.
Phares was also initially charged in connection with Dietrich Jackson's death, but all charges against her were dismissed.
Jackson is now facing four charges of Class C felony battery by means of a deadly weapon. Each charge is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of eight years.
Over objections from the state, Jackson's original $20,000 cash only bond was reduced on Oct. 13 to $20,000 with 10 percent allowed. Jackson posted bond and was released from jail on Oct. 15.
As a condition of her bond reduction, Jackson was required to be placed on electronic home monitoring immediately upon her release from jail. Her attorney, Kristin Szczerbik of Cloverdale, requested on Nov. 12 that Jackson be released from home monitoring, but that request was denied by the court.
