Grand jury returns indictments

Two from county face rape charges

A Barren County grand jury returned 38 felony indictments during its recent term of service, according to Commonwealth Attorney Karen Davis.

Of the 43 cases presented concerning 50 defendants, there were 158 charges presented dealing with a bevy of crimes, including 10 charges dealing with offenses against children.

There were 27 charges dealing with drug-related crimes.

The grand jury indicted two from the county on rape charges.

Rickey Carl Cook, 41, of Summer Shade, faces a charge of first-degree rape and incest based on testimony from Capt. Danny Coomer of the Cave City Police Department regarding events that occurred during November of 2005.

Adam Lucan Wood, 29, of Glasgow, also faces a first-degree rape charge stemming from the testimony of Glasgow Police Department Detective Rodney Sponhouse concerning events that happened April 22 and 23. Wood also faces charges for being a persistent felony offender.

Jack B. Sartin Jr., 60, of Cave City, faces two counts of first-degree sodomy and sexual abuse in connection with events that occurred between Oct. 31 through May 1. Detective Laura Isenberg of the Kentucky State Police testified in that case.

An indictment represents only the prosecution’s side of the case and does not imply guilt, only that enough evidence exists for the case to proceed to trial.

Others indicted by the grand jury include:

Leslie Glean Horton, 27, of Cave City, for possession of anhydrous ammonia in an unwrapped container with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine; promoting contraband and being a persistent felony offender after a Barren County Drug Task Force investigation.

A Glasgow boy, 16, was indicted on for criminal abuse on a child 12 or younger based on testimony by GPD officer Jimmy Phelps.

Russell Lee Patton, 18, of Beaumont, for second-degree assault based on testimony from Barren County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Kevin Wilson.

Tommy Bryant Mills, 38, of Park City, for second-degree assault and being a persistent felony offender based on testimony from a local resident.
