Courts

  • Eight indicted for organized crime

    Eight people were indicted Wednesday on charges of engaging in organized crime in connection to a September drug raid by the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force.

    Details on each person’s level of involvement were not included in the indictments, but the indictments generally accused them of participation, support or management of a criminal syndicate for the purposes of trafficking in crystal methamphetamine.

    Those indicted were:

    • Timothy L. Yonts, 47

    • Javanna L. Reiter, 64

    • Blair Zachery, 27

  • Nelson County Court indictments from Feb. 1

    Note: The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

    The following people were indicted Feb. 1 by a Nelson County grand jury. They were set for arraignment in Nelson Circuit Court Feb. 16.

    Jennifer Bailey, 33, of Bardstown, second-degree burglary. On or about Dec. 13, 2016, Bailey unlawfully entered or remained in a residence with the intent to commit a crime. Bail was set at $9,500 cash only, plus conditions.

  • WHAT NOT TO WEAR: How spectators appear in court could affect cases

    A local family seeking justice for their son is preparing for a long awaited murder trial this week. But supporters have been warned that how they appear in the courtroom Wednesday could potentially affect proceedings.

    As the trial for accused killer Alexander Cole Roberts has been delayed in court several times, family and friends of victim Rasheed Javon Wickliffe have attended court proceedings. Several attendees at those court appearances wore clothing with Wickliffe’s photo and carried signs related to the case.

  • Family, friends prepare for long-awaited murder trial

    The murder trial for Alexander Cole Roberts is set to start Wednesday in Nelson County Circuit Court. It’s a day for which the victim’s family has waited more than a year.

    “We are asking everyone to be there and to rally together that day,” said Monica Mitchell, aunt of Rasheed Javon Wickliffe, who died from a puncture wound to the neck Dec. 1, 2015.

    Roberts is charged with Wickliffe’s murder, but the teen’s trial has been pushed back repeatedly, and the delays have had the family questioning the local justice system.

  • Bardstown man indicted for sex abuse

    A Bardstown man was indicted by a Nelson County Grand Jury Wednesday for a first-degree sexual abuse charge. Phillip C. Keeling, 25, is charged with subjecting a minor under the age of 12 to sexual contact sometime between Oct. 1, 2016 and Nov. 30, 2016.

    The charge is a Class C Felony.

    Keeling’s arraignment was set for March 2 and his bail was set at $9,500 cash only, plus conditions.

  • Former bailiff enters plea, three charges dismissed

    CLARIFICATION: An article about this case printed on page A2 of the Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 edition of The Kentucky Standard incorrectly listed a condition of a plea deal involving Barbara Roby. Roby is to have no employment in law enforcement for two years as a condition of the deal.

    A former Nelson County bailiff does not face jail time, but must comply with certain conditions of a plea agreement involving an official misconduct case.
