|Speculation regarding an indictment against Grantsville's former Police Chief Ron Gordon did not occur during yesterday's session of the Calhoun Grand Jury.|
An indictment, if it is presented, would be made by a Putnam County prosecutor Thomas Kirk, since Calhoun prosecutor Matt Minney has recused himself from the case.
Minney said yesterday that a Grand Jury is not scheduled again until September.
"While it has been pretty rare, it is possible to have it (grand jury) called back for a special session," he said.
State Police investigators have reportedly interviewed dozens and dozens of individuals locally about the Gordon case.
The State Police said it it investigating allegations that have been made against other law enforcement officers in the county, but have apparently not reached any conclusions in the matter.
Yesterday, the grand jury did issue six local indictments.
- Gary Lee Nicholson, Grantsville, one count of transferring stolen property.
- Larry Richards of Big Springs, one count of failure to meet an obligation to provide child support to a minor.
- Ernest Hall of Arnoldsburg, sexual assault in second degree, four counts; sexual abuse by a guardian, parent, custodian, four counts' incest, two counts.
- Jennifer Jones of Grantsville, delivery of a controlled substance, one count; conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, one count.
- Thomas H. Shock, Millstone, delivery of a controlled substance, one count; conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, one count.
A Grand Jury indictment does not mean the person is guilty of the crime for which they are charged, but there is sufficient evidence to indicate a crime has been committed.
