Two Campbellsville residents have been charged with drug 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.

Steve A. "Boo" Pritchard, 34, of 630 Elmore Road was charged with selling marijuana within 1,000 yards of a school and being a second-degree persistent felony offender.

Bond was set at 10 percent of $20,000. If convicted, Pritchard 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.

Jeffrey D. Karr, 53, of 109 Patterson Court in Campbellsville was indicted on charges of first-degree selling oxycodone and being a first-degree persistent felony offender.

Bond was set at $20,000 cash. If convicted, Karr could be sentenced to as much as 10 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. It does not establish guilt.
