News JCSO seeking assistance in locating potential victims of sexual offense

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance in locating other potential victims and/or witnesses in the case involving Jessica May Carpenter, 35, of 57 Aurora Lane, Sylva.

While investigating a case where alcohol was bought and given to a minor person, investigators determined further criminal conduct had occurred. Subsequently, Carpenter was charged and arrested with statutory rape or sexual offense of a person 13, 14, or 15 years old and is being held on a $100,000 secured bond.

The investigation into this offense as well as other offenses is continuing. Other witnesses and potential other victims may not have come forward. Those persons are encouraged to contact Detective Andi Clayton at (828) 586-1392. Potential victims may be minors who received alcohol from the suspect or are victims of sexual misconduct.
