Friday, January 28, 2011 5:10 pm
Grand jurors indicted 29 people, 14 of which were sealed, when they convened Friday at the Cannon County Courthouse.
Friday marked the start of a new term of Cannon County Circuit Court. The event is always marked by the meeting of the grand jury.
The defendants indicted during Friday’s court session included:
Shannon Dewayne Cobble for promotion of methamphetamine manufacture, simple possession of schedule III, convicted felon in possession of a handgun, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while license revoked,
Charles Grizzle for felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia,
Cory Lee Crawford Young for initiation of a process intended to result in the manufacture of methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling or vehicle to manufacture methamphetamine and criminal trespass,
Jerry Richard Rutledge for promotion of methamphetamine manufacture and possession of drug paraphernalia,
William Scott Lewis for simple possession of schedule II drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, simple possession of schedule VI drugs and driving while license revoked,
Brittany Ross for aggravated burglary, theft, simple possession of schedule IV and two counts of possession of a legend drug,
Marcus Tenpenny for driving while license revoked,
Marcus Tenpenny, Robyn Wilmouth and Joshua Crook for aggravated burglary and theft,
Barbara Nichols Moss for disorderly conduct,
Tony Lee McPeak for theft and driving while license revoked,
Barry Lee Spurlock for driving under the influence,
William Matthew Holt for driving under the influence over .20% and evading arrest,
Stephanie Mooneyham for two counts of theft, and
Kevin Troy Coe for domestic assault and two counts aggravated assault.
The grand jury refused to indict Aubrey Kilgore for vehicular assault and Mark Seybold for vandalism.
In addition to those mentioned above, the Grand Jury returned 14 sealed indictments. The names of those defendants will not be released until the are arrested.
The next step for these defendants will be arraignment day, when they will officially be read their charges.
It should be noted that an indictment is not a finding of guilt. It simply means that the Grand Jury determined there was enough evidence to move the case forward to trial.
