Earlier this month, the grand jury met in Perry County and returned nine indictments. Now less than a month later, the grand jury has met again and issued several more indictments.
Last Friday, a grand jury handed down eight indictments in Perry County. Ronnie G. Holbrook, age 44 from Knott County, was indicted on six charges last week. Most of Holbrook’s charges are related to driving offenses, including a felony charge of driving DUI on a suspended license for a second offense.
Holbrook was also indicted on the charges of third offense of operating a motor vehicle under the influence, reckless driving, possession of marijuana, failure to illuminate headlamps, and failure to give a proper signal on a roadway. Holbrook was indicted on charges stemming from a late November incident last year and bail was set at $20,000.
Bobby Sizemore, of Carrie in Knott County, was indicted for the felony charge of fraudulent use of a credit card. Sizemore, age 26, allegedly used a stolen credit card at a Rent-A-Center in an amount over $100 in November 2006. Bail was set at $20,000.
The Grand Jury indicted Doug Randall Hall, 22, of Hazard, on three felony charges. Hall allegedly possessed a check worth $3,700 with the forged signature of account owner Janice North last July and is charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second-degree. Hall is also indicted on charges of cashing the check for his own account and using North’s ATM card in an amount over $100. Hall’s bail was set at $25,000.
Also during July 2006, Pearl W. White, of Combs, allegedly had a forged check belonging to Venetta Duncan-Cole in the amount of $55.00 and then cashed the check. For allegedly possessing the forged check, White, age 28, was indicted on the felony charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument and the misdemeanor of theft by deception under $300 for charges that he cashed the check. White’s bond is set at $5,000.
Greta Napier, age 24, of Busy, was also indicted on charges relating to theft last week. Napier was charged with the felony of theft by unlawful taking over $300 and the misdemeanor of theft by unlawful taking under $300. Napier is alleged to have stolen goods worth more than $300 from J.C. Penny’s and goods under $300 from Maurice’s during October of last year. Her bail was set at $20,000.
The Grand Jury also indicted Christopher J. Allen of Hazard. Allen, age 26, was charged with possession of a controlled substance after allegedly possessing methadone from a December 2005 incident. In addition to that felony charge, Allen was indicted on the misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana and faces a $25,000 bond.
Two of the indictments handed down by the grand jury last week dealt with sex crimes. William “Bill” Moore, 58, of Hazard, was indicted on a felony charge of failure to comply with sex offender registration. The indictment came because Moore allegedly failed to vacate his residence located within 1,000 feet of a public school or playground. The indictment came with a $25,000 bond.
William C. Fletcher, age 43, of Hazard, faces three felony charges after being indicted for third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy, and first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor. Between May and August of 2005, Fletcher allegedly had sexual intercourse, including sodomy, with a female less than 16 years-old while he was age 41. His bond was set at $100,000.
All defendants are set for arraignment later in March according to indictments from the Circuit Court Clerk’s office.
