By Greg Bird

The McCreary County Grand Jury released six indictments this month against six individuals.
Candice Arnett, of Madisonville, was indicted on counts of Trafficking in a Controlled Substance First Degree, Trafficking in a Controlled Substance Second Degree and Promoting Contraband First Degree for allegedly being found a quantity of Methamphetamine and Suboxone and intending to introducing the contraband to the federal prison in Pine Knot on September 1.
Danny Roberts, of Whitley City, was charged with counts of Burglary First Degree, Unlawful Imprisonment Second Degree, Terroristic Threatening, Harassing Communications and Resisting Arrest. The indictment alleges Roberts unlawfully entered a residence on November 25, threatening to kill or cause physical injury to the resident and restraining the resident – exposing her to a risk of serious physical injury. He also reportedly called and texted the resident’s phone multiple times at home and at work and refused to comply with commands of Trooper Derek Lovett.
Michael Stephens, of Whitley City, was charged with one count of Theft by Deception of the Value of $500 or More but Less than $10,000 for allegedly accepting a payment of $2,640 from an individual for the purchase of cabinets on October 23, and has never produced the product.
Courtney Bowles, of Pine Knot, was indicted on a count of Assault First Degree for reportedly stabbing an individual on October 30, causing serious physical injury.
Mark C. Ball, of Pine Knot, was charged with a count of Fleeing or Evading Police First Degree for allegedly knowingly and unlawfully failing to obey signals of Trooper Keegan Bray to stop his vehicle on December 27. He was also charged with one count of Driving a Motor Vehicle While License is Revoked or Suspended.
Emory Cox, of Pine Knot, was charged with Flagrant Non Support for reportedly failing to make court-ordered child support payments to his two children for not less than six months and in arrearage of $1,000 or more.
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.
