Jason Curry was arrested at the time on charges of possession of a controlled substance, distribution of a controlled substance and prostitution.

He was indicted on the charge of conspiracy to commit distribution of a controlled substance, a class B felony; unlawful possession of a controlled substance, a class C felony; and prostitution, class A misdemeanor.

The grand jury indictment shows “that before the finding of this indictment, Jason Curry, whose name is unknown to the grand jury other than as states, did, with the intent that conduct constituting the crime of distribution of a controlled substance be performed, agree with one or more persons to engage in or cause the performance of such conduct, and one and/or the other of them did commit an overt act to effect an objective of the agreement, to-wit: agree to exchange a controlled substance for sexual acts and/or did bring controlled substances to exchange for sexual acts.”

Specifically, oxycodone.

According to Star-News archives, Jason Curry was found to be in possession of two OxyContin 40 milligram pills, which he attempted to provide to an Alabama Bureau of Investigation informant in return for sexual activities.

The prostitution indictment says that Curry did agree to engage in sexual intercourse, deviate sexual intercourse or sexual contact with another and/or participated in the act for monetary consideration or other thing of value in furtherance of the agreement, to wit: oxycodone. He was taken to the Covington County Jail on $250,000 bond for the conspiracy charge, $100,000 for the possession charge and $25,000 for the prostitution charge.
