Mayfield's attorney refutes allegations

The attorney for Jeremy Mayfield claims his client is not guilty of charges for the possession of stolen goods or methamphetamines.

The drugs and stolen items were found on Mayfield’s 400 acre property by North Carolina’s Catawba County police on Tuesday night.

The former NASCAR driver’s attorney Daniel Marino issued a statement in response to the arrest and allegations:

“Last evening, the Catawba County Sheriff’s Department conducted a search at the home of Jeremy Mayfield. Mr. Mayfield understands that the purpose of the search was to seize allegedly stolen property and that the investigators claim to have seized methamphetamine from his home.

“Mr. Mayfield has no knowledge of either stolen property or methamphetamine being present on his property and denies the accusation that he was in possession of methamphetamine or any other illegal drug and he denies any suggestion that he knowingly received or possessed stolen property.” 

Marino insists the search and resulting evidence were both unfounded.

“This search was prompted by what the evidence will show were baseless allegations by an unreliable source,” the statement continued. “Mr. Mayfield and his attorneys are cooperating with the authorities and they look forward to this matter being resolved quickly. In the meantime, Mr. Mayfield asks that the public reserve its judgment on this matter.” 

Mayfield was released on $3,000 bond after the arrest and has a November 14 court date scheduled.

Mayfield's attorney refutes allegations

My sentiments exactly. He needs help. This started years ago. If what some say is true, he's been an addict for years. People comment that he doesn't look like a meth addict. It looks like he's had dental work and I think he's very paranoid about keeping a clean appearance. It doesn't matter who else was or is involved, Jeremy needs to take responsibility and gain control over his own life or something worse than this is bound to happen. Pray for him.

If Mayfield is guilty of these crimes let us hope he gets some help and gets his life in order.I know little about Meth but have heard how bad the stuff is and how highly addictive can be,if Mayfield is hooked on Meth it doesn't mean he is a bad person he just has a bad problem and i hope he heals from this sickness.

secrethistory is an absolute nutjob! On the other hand one of the other posters asked: "is his lawyer on Meth too? " Now that was funny!

On a serious note I hope this turns out to be false but I wouldn't bet against it being the truth.

This search was prompted by what the evidence will show were baseless allegations by an unreliable source,” the statement continued.




So the search was prompted by baseless allegations by an unreliable source huh???  So even though they found what this unreliable source said they would find on the property, they are baseless allegations????  Was Mayfield sharing his meth with his attorney???  I would say the source was pretty reliable if he told police you will find this on his property and wow the cops go and there is what they were told was going to be there...
