Six individuals were indicted in Grayson County Circuit Court last month on a variety of charges. All individuals listed have had charges brought against them by the state of Kentucky, but are consdiered innocent until proven guilty.
– Andrew C. Tesch, 46, of Russellville, KY, was indicted for being a persistent felony offender in the first degree.
Tesch is accused of having committed a crime between Aug. 7 – 8, while having previously been convicted of two or more felonies within the past five years, or while on parole or conditional release from jail.
The Commonwealth recommended that Tesch be held on a $10,000 cash bond due to his criminal history, and to have no contact with a co-defendant in his criminal case.
Corey C. Williams, 27, of Spring Street in Leitchfield, was indicted on charges of possession of a controlled substance in the first degree (heroin) possession of drug paraphernalia, and public intoxication with a controlled substance other than alcohol.
Court documents accuse Williams of having possessed heroin and drug paraphernalia on or about Dec. 10 of last year, and of being publicly intoxicated with a controlled substance which was “not therapeutically administered” at the time.
Leitchfield Police Officer Brandon Cook served as a witness against Williams, against whom the court recommended a $10,000 bond be levied, with half of that being required in cash due to his “criminal history.”
– Amy L. Gentleman, 27, and Patrick T. Grimes, 43, both of Winn Drive in Leitchfield, were indicted on one charge each of possession of a controlled substance in the first degree (methamphetamine).
Gentleman and Grimes are accused of each having had methamphetamine in their possession on January 1, and were each recommended a $10,000 bond, with 25 percent being required in cash.
The Commonwealth cited Gentleman’s and Grimes’ criminal history as a reason for their recommendation.
Cook served as a witness against Gentleman and Grimes.
– Wallace L. Mercer, 27, of Clay Street in Leitchfield, was indicted for possession of a controlled substance in the first degree (opiates).
Court documents read that Mercer “had morphine in his possession” on or about March 2. Cook served as a witness in this case as well.
The Commonwealth recommended that Mercer be held on a $10,000 cash bond, with 25 percent being required in cash.
– Stephen J. Caldwell was indicted on charges of theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $10,000, and theft by deception over $10,000.
