10 indicted by Carter grand jury

April 23, 2014 — A Carter County grand jury indicted 10 individuals on April 11. 

Phillip Hampton, 22, of Olive Hill, was indicted on three felony charges. He faces one count of first degree assault, a Class B felony, after allegedly stabbing a woman with a deadly weapon on Jan. 27. 

Hampton also faces two counts of first degree wanton endangerment, a Class D felony, for displaying violent behavior with a deadly weapon in close proximity to minor children. 

Jonathan Carr, 32, of Grayson, was indicted on two counts of intimidating a participant in the legal process, both Class D felonies. 

He also was indicted on two counts of third degree terroristic threatening, both Class A misdemeanors. 

Also indicted were: 

Christopher Claxon, 30, of Grayson, and Tori Young, 20, of Webbville, on one count of first degree trafficking in a scheduled II controlled substance, oxycodone, a Class C felony. Both also were indicted on one count of first degree trafficking in heroin, a Class D felony.

Claxon also is indicted on one count of being a persistent felony offender, a Class B felony. 

Craig Fryer, 26, of Rush, and Jamie Nunley, 37, of Grayson, were indicted on one count of first degree burglary, a Class B felony, and one count of theft of a firearm, a Class D felony. 

Jeffery Brian Sloas, 37, of Grayson, on one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B felony. 

Roger Miller, 53, of Willard, on one count of first degree possession of a controlled substance, heroin, a Class D felony. 

Dustin Clark, 35, of Grayson, on one count of second degree assault, a Class C felony. Clark also was indicted on one count of theft by unlawful taking under $500, a Class A misdemeanor. 

Gary M. Howerton, 28, of Olive Hill, on one count of first degree possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, oxycodone, a Class D felony. He also faces a Class B misdemeanor for operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only. That person is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
