Hearing waived; man faces trial in drug case

A rural Joplin man waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday in Jasper County Circuit Court on felony drug and child endangerment charges.

James C. Hunt, 38, was ordered bound over for trial by Associate Judge Richard Copeland on counts of manufacturing a controlled substance and first-degree endangerment of a child. The judge set Hunt’s initial appearance in a trial division of the court for April 30.

The Jasper County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at the defendant’s home at 4461 N. Black Cat Road on Aug. 2 of last year and reportedly seized numerous components of a meth lab. A probable-cause affidavit says children were living in the home at the time.
