Nine individuals were named in seven separate indictments handed down by the McCreary County Grand Jury this week.
Timothy Coffey, of Stearns, faces three counts of Kidnapping, Assault Fourth Degree and Terroristic Threatening Third Degree for allegedly unlawfully restraining a female victim on August 3, repeatedly hitting her with fists and open hands, and dragging her around with an extension cord tied to her, causing physical injury and threatening to kill or cause serious physical injury to her.
James Decoursey, of Hopkinsville, was indicted on counts of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance First Degree and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia for reportedly having over two grams of methamphetamine and items commonly used for the ingestion or sale of illegal controlled substances on July 11. He also faces Persistent Felony Offender charges after previous convictions in Christian and Daviess Counties.
Decoursey was indicted in September on similar charges stemming from his July arrest.
Kacee Farley and Daniel Ball of Stearns were indicted on two counts of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument Second Degree for allegedly cashing two forged checks totaling $150.
Cynthia Smith, of Stearns, was indicted on one count of Arson Second Degree and one count of Burglary Second Degree for reportedly unlawfully entering a home on June 20 with the intent of committing a crime and starting a fire with the intent to destroy or damage the home.
Michael Trammell, of Pine Knot, was indicted on one count of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance First Degree and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia for allegedly being found with a quantity of methamphetamine as well as scales, baggies and marijuana smoking devices on July 5.
Trammell is also facing Persistent Felony Offender charges after a previous conviction in 2009.
Ronald Ellis and Michael Miller, both of Revelo, were named in an indictment charging them with Receiving Stolen Property over $500 for allegedly knowingly and unlawfully receiving and possessing a wood burning stove, washer and dryer and a stereo system stolen from an individual on September 8.
Ellis and Miller were also named on a separate indictment along with Michael Doran, of Revelo, on charges of Burglary Third Degree for reportedly knowingly and unlawfully entering a building on September 10.
Dorn also faces Persistent Felony Offender charges after a 2012 conviction.
The Voice would like to remind our readers that an indictment is not an indication of one’s guilt or innocence, but represents that enough evidence exists in a case to pursue the matter in a court of law.
