Indictments handed down
In April 28 Issue

The Russell County Grand Jury indicted 11 people on charges at this week's meeting, including manslaughter, various sexual offenses and manufacturing meth, according to circuit court records.

Ricky Simpson, 28, of Russell Springs, was charged with manslaughter, felony assault, wanton endangerment and DUI. The document says Simpson was allegedly under the influence of oxycodone when the van he was driving hit head-on with a van being driven by 38-year-old Sherri Vibbert on February 15th, ultimately causing her death.

Lori Taylor, 26, of Jamestown, was charged with six counts of using a minor in a sexual performance and six counts of distributing matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. The indictment alleges the incidences took place between January 2010 and February 2011. It also says during that time Taylor distributed pictures and a video of the alleged sexual performances by the minor.

Virgis Ward, 55, of Kemper in Pike County, was charged with one count of sodomy and four counts of first degree sexual abuse. Ward is accused of engaging in "deviate sexual intercourse" and subjecting a person less than 16 years of age to sexual contact, according to the indictment.

o Ernest Foley, 43, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, burglary and fleeing and evading police.

o Shane Mullins, 26, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance. Mullins along with 31-year -Sarah Taylor were both charged with tampering with physical evidence.

o Robert Hall, 47, was charged with DUI 4th or greater offense, driving on a suspended license and terroristic threatening.

o Michael McDaniel, 59, was charged with three counts of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

o Justin Keith, 23, was charged with wanton endangerment and two counts of fourth degree assault.

o Joshua Giles, 26, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

o William J. Galbreath, 24, was charged with criminal possession of a forged prescription.

There was one sealed indictment and one no true-bill, according to the records.

Readers are reminded that indictment by a grand jury is an accusation and does not imply guilt. The indictment indicates the jury believed that enough evidence existed to support the charges that a trial was warranted.
