Pocahontas Defendants Ordered Jailed, Drug-Tested in Snake Mailing Trial

January 23, 2004 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A judge ordered surprise drug tests to a father and son on trial for mailing a poisonous snake to another man.  The results yesterday led the judge to order the two jailed for the remainder of their federal trial in Little Rock.

Trial for Bob Castleman, a lawyer and former district judge in Pocahontas, and his son, 20-year-old Robert Jerrod Castleman is to extend into next week.

Court officials said Bob Castleman tested positive for methamphetamine, amphetamine and marijuana.  Jerrod Castleman tested positive for marijuana.  Officials said both men had a history of drug use.

Castleman and his son are charged with one count each of mailing a threatening communication, punishable by up to five years in prison, and with mailing non-mailable matter with the intent to injure or kill, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence.

Bob Castleman is also charged with one count of witness tampering, which holds a minimum ten-year sentence.
