JACKSBORO—Four people were jailed after allegedly invading a home and forcing its occupant to strip naked.


Jacksboro police responded to an apartment on Eagle Bluff Road after reports of a domestic dispute. The victim told Officer Mike Caudill that Joseph Jamerson, Jessica Jamerson, Travis Jordan Riley and Jacklynn Green White, all of 1012 W. Kentucky St., LaFollette, came into her apartment without her permission, police records indicated.

The four then allegedly made the victim take all her clothes off to make sure she wasn’t hiding money before kicking her in the stomach and stealing her dog, purse and phone, according to reports.

The victim attempted to stop the four individuals from leaving, but was reportedly struck by the vehicle’s door. Her lip was busted and one tooth was knocked out, she told police.

The defendants told police that the victim removed her clothes voluntarily and nobody kicked her, records indicated.

Jessika Jamerson, Joseph Jamerson and Jacklynn Green White were charged with burglary, theft greater than $500 and assault. Travis Jordan Riley was charged with second offense driving on a suspended license, burglary, theft greater than $500, assault by motor vehicle and assault.
