HILLIARD MAN INDICTED FOR PROVIDING HEROIN THAT LED TO NEAR FATAL OVERDOSE
Posted on 7/18/2016
Defendant: Jon Michael Jones
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said, “The victim in this case injected some heroin from a $30 buy and then proceeded to operate a motor vehicle on I-270. Almost immediately thereafter, he lost consciousness while behind the steering wheel, and his passenger (the defendant in this case) got the car stopped on the side of the freeway.” Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced today that the Franklin County Grand Jury has returned an indictment against Jon Michael Jones, age 25, for one count of Corrupting Another With Drugs (F-2), one count of Trafficking in Heroin (F-5), and one count of Tampering with Evidence (F-3), in connection to the June 3rd, 2016 near fatal overdose of Trent Coburn, age 28, while he was driving on I-270. Fortunately a passerby called 911, the Columbus Fire Department EMS arrived, and they rendered immediate assistance by administering Narcan, which ultimately saved Coburn’s life. O’Brien commended the conscientious citizen, CFD EMS for their immediate life-saving response and assistance, as well as Franklin County Sheriff’s HOPE Task Force.
