Maysville Man Charged for Fatal DUI Crash

A family from Northern Kentucky has expressed relief following the indictment of a man involved in the death of a family member. James Lindle was struck and killed in Maysville on Mary Ingles Highway in June 2023 by driver Justin Scott, who was arrested for DUI, but not for Lindle’s death.

Upon hearing news of Scott’s indictment for her brother’s death, Lindle’s sister, Stephanie Jones, expressed her relief, adding that she had tirelessly sought answers from the Kentucky State Police (KSP) and the prosecutor’s office. Jones states her actions were to bring a sense of peace to her nieces, Lindle’s daughters.

The case was initially handled by Rob Sanders, the Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney, after the original prosecutor, Kelly Clarke, recused himself. Clarke, the Mason County Commonwealth Attorney, was at the same bar as Scott before the fatal incident that resulted in Lindle’s death.

Scott has been indicted on charges of manslaughter, leaving the scene of a fatal crash, and a second DUI offense. Scott has two previous DUIs in 2008 and 2014 and is currently on bond, monitored by an ankle tracker.

Jones wishes for her brother to be remembered for his kindness and jovial nature and affirmed that their family has waited for someone to acknowledge what happened. Although a trial is still some way off, this development has brought some satisfaction to Lindle’s family.
