Resident charged in sealed indictment

-A A +A

A Campbellsville man has been charged with selling drugs in an indictment 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.

Aaron T. Gowdy, 30, of 425 Timothy Trail, was charged with first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine and being a first-degree persistent felony offender.

Bond was set at $15,000 cash. If convicted, Gowdy could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison. The charge of being a persistent felony offender could increase any sentence he might receive.

• An indictment is a legal accusation only.
