LCSO serves indictments

Other indictments served include credit card fraud and unlawful possession of an illegal substance.

When the grand jury agrees the evidence is sufficient to establish the commission of a crime, it returns an indictment endorsed by the grand jury foreman with the phrase “true bill” to indicate the information presented is sufficient to justify the trial of the suspect.

The following indictments have been served:

• Lisa Carnely was indicted for a fraudulent check.

• Timothy Johnson was indicted for a fraudulent check.

• Terrance Bryant was indicted for failure to support minor children.

• Justin Aldridge was indicted for failure to support minor children.
