Man charged in sealed indictment

-A A +A

A Campbellsville man has been charged with selling drugs in indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge. And, at the same time the indictments were unsealed, the charges were dismissed.

Wilson T. Johnson, 43, of 109 Johnson St., was charged last October in five separate indictments with five counts of first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.

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

Bond in each case was set at $10,000 cash. If convicted in all five cases, he could have been sentenced to as much as 25 years in prison.

According to court records, the charges were dismissed on Jan. 24 because the wrong suspect information was given in a case report.

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