Three of the 12 individuals indicted this month in Grayson County Circuit Court are facing non-drug related charges ranging from exploiting an adult; sexual abuse; and giving false statements to receive Medicaid and Food Stamp benefits.
Christopher J. Woosley, 30, of Renfrow Street in Clarkson, was indicted on nine counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree, five theft by deception including cold checks under $500, theft by unlawful taking or disposition of property valued at between $500 and $10,000, knowingly exploiting an adult resulting in loss of resources over $300, and being a persistent felony offender in the second degree.
Woosley is accused of passing nine forged checks drawn from Leitchfield Deposit Bank from the account of Aileen F. Duvall. The checks ranged from $30 to $100 each, with a total amount of almost $600.
Furthermore, court documents accuse Woosley of taking jewelry worth between $500 and $10,000 from Duvall, and of exploiting Duvall by using resources valued at more than $300 by “deception, intimidation or similar means with intent to deprive her thereof.”
Additionally, documents allege that Woosley passed a total of five cold checks; two to Wal-Mart and one each to Peter Cave Liquors and 62 Stop & Shop.
Finally, Woosley is accused of being a persistent felony offender. This charge is levvied against individuals who purportedly committed a crime while also having been previously convicted of a felony within the past five years or while on parole or other conditional release.
Leitchfield Police Detective Kevin Smith served as a witness against Woosley, who the Commonwealth recommended be held on a $10,000 bond.
35-year-old Misty D. Haycraft, of Watershed Road in Caneyville, was indicted for giving a false statement or misrepresenting in order to receive benefits valued at over $100.
Haycraft’s charge stems from the accusation that she “falsely stated or misrepresented her household income… for the purpose of receiving Food Stamp and/or Medicaid benefits,” according to court documents.
Haycraft purportedly gave false information to receive more than three years’ worth of benefits between March of 2012 and May of 2015.
21-year-old David A. Imbrescia, of Wilson Lane in Leitchfield, was indicted on charges of sexual abuse in the first degree, two counts of prohibited use of electronic communication system to procure a minor/peace officer to commit a sexual offense, and sexual misconduct.
Imbrescia’s charges stem from incidents between June of 2013 and June of 2015, according to court documents.
He is accused of having had sexual intercourse with [a minor] without her consent, and of asking the same minor “for sexual contact using a cellular phone.”
He is further accused of having sexual contact with a second minor under the age of 16 and also of asking the same minor “for sexual contact using a cellular phone,” according to court documents.
Leitchfield Police Detective Kevin Smith served as a witness in court against Imbrescia.
Each of the individuals facing circuit court indictments are to be considered innocent until proven guilty. Indictments are charges being brought against an individual by the Commonwealth, but are not a finding of guilt.
