  • Two charged in sealed indictments

    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.

    Gary Daniel Harris, 30, of Anna Court was charged in two separate indictments with two counts of first-degree selling oxycodone.

    Bond in one case was set at 10 percent of $20,000. In the other case, Harris' bond was set at 10 percent of $10,000.

    If convicted in both cases, Harris could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison.
