Three Campbellsville residents have been charged with drug and other crimes in indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

A grand jury may seal an indictment if there is a possibility that the accused will try to evade police.

Jeffrey Dewayne Mitchell, 27, of Scott Terrace Apartments, Apt. 8, was charged in three separate indictments with three counts of first-degree selling cocaine.

Bond for two of the cases was set at 10 percent of $25,000. In the other case, bond was set at 10 percent of $15,000.

If convicted on all counts, Mitchell could be sentenced to as much as 30 years in prison.

Myron Young, 37, of 89 Stewards Lane in Campbellsville was indicted on charges of first-degree selling cocaine, his second offense, and being a first-degree persistent felony offender.

Bond was set at $25,000 cash. If convicted, Young could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison. The charge of being a persistent felony offender could increase any sentence he might receive.

Ashlee Nicole Karr, 24, of 109 Patterson Court in Campbellsville was indicted on a charge of first-degree selling oxycodone.

Bond was set at 10 percent of $20,000. If convicted, Karr could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.

Another defendant was charged along with Karr, though that indictment has not yet been unsealed.

- An indictment is a legal accusation only. It does not establish guilt.
