District Attorney Bryant C. Dunaway Saturday July 15, 2017

District Attorney Bryant C. Dunaway reports that a White County woman has been convicted of dealing drugs and child abuse. Janell Frasier pled guilty to the Sale of Methamphetamine over .5 grams, Class B felony, and Attempted Aggravated child abuse, a Class B felony. Frazier was sentenced to serve 16-years incarceration with the Tennessee Department of Corrections. According to Assistant District Attorney Bruce MacLeod, in August 2016, Frasier sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant while her 11-month-old baby was in the room with her which exposed the infant child to the dangerous drug. The drug sale in Frazier?s home was captured on video by drug investigators with the White County Sherriff?s department. The baby was removed from the home by the Department of Children?s Services and later tested positive for meth. DA Dunaway said his office takes very seriously any crime that victimizes children and puts them in harm?s way. These type of cases will be diligently prosecuted. The protection of our children is of utmost importance.
