Somerset — A Pulaski County Grand Jury has indicted James F. (Jimmy) Jasper apparently in connection with the March 5 accident on Pumphouse Road that injured himself and his daughter, 12-year-old Jaden Brooke Jasper.

The indictment charges Jimmy Jasper with first-degree assault "by operating his vehicle in such a manner, thereby causing serious physical injury upon J.B.J and under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of a human life."

Somerset Police Department Det. Larry Patterson was named as the testifying witness against Jasper.

A warrant has been issued for Jasper's arrest and his bail has been set at $50,000 cash. Complete details will appear in the Thursday, April 4, 2013, edition of the Commonwealth Journal.
