Man arrested after repeated invasion of privacy


A 43-year-old Crothersville man has been arrested for invasion of privacy after his arrest on similar charges just more than two weeks ago.

On Thursday, Seymour Police Department investigators learned Jessie L. Brown had violated a protective order when they were following up on numerous stalking and invasion of privacy charges he had, according to a news release from Lt. C.J. Foster.

Officers and investigators from Seymour and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 10000 block of State Road 250 to arrest Brown, Foster said.

Brown, however, resisted arrest when investigators tried placing him in custody. He eventually was arrested, but a Seymour investigator sustained a hand injury, Foster said.

Brown faces new charges of invasion of privacy, a Class A misdemeanor; resisting law enforcement resulting in bodily injury to a law enforcement officer, a Level 6 felony; and resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor.

He also faces a charge of intimidation after threatening a county police officer transporting him to the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown.

Brown was booked into the jail at 1:27 p.m. and was being held without bond pending his initial appearance in Jackson Circuit Court in Brownstown.

Prior to Thursday’s arrest, Brown’s most recent trip to jail occurred Jan. 19 when he was arrested for invasion of privacy and other separate charges. At that time, Brown had violated a protective order 13 times since September 2020, police said.

In Indiana, a Level 6 felony is punishable by six months to two and a half years in prison with an advisory sentence of one year if convicted.
