  • Local man charged in sealed indictment

    A Campbellsville resident has been charged with selling cocaine 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.

    Tyler Wilson aka James T. Wilson, 25, of High Pine, Apt. 35, was indicted on a charge of first-degree selling cocaine.

    Bond was set at 10 percent of $25,000. If convicted, Wilson could be sentenced to as much as 10 years in prison.
