Residents charged in sealed indictments

-A A +A

Three Campbellsville residents have been charged with selling cocaine in indictments recently unsealed by a Taylor Circuit Court judge.

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

Indicted were:

• James Tyrone Johnson, 38, of 109 Johnson St., was charged in six separate cases with six counts of first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.

Bond in all six cases was set at $5,000 cash. If convicted in all of the cases, Johnson could be sentenced to as much as 30 years in prison.

• In one of the cases against Johnson, he was charged along with Joanne L. Couch, 38, also of 109 Johnson St.

Couch was also charged with first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.

Her bond was also set at $5,000 cash. If convicted, she could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.

• Duane Thompson, 28, of 124 E. Walnut St. in Campbellsville, was charged with first-degree selling less than 4 grams of cocaine.

Bond was set at $6,000 unsecured and Thompson was ordered to be monitored by pretrial services staff members. If convicted, he could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.

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