Trial date set in organized crime case

Jan. 8, 2014 — An Olive Hill organized crime case will go to trial June 24.

Larry Mock, 60, Patricia Mock, 60, and Bob McGlone, 24, all of Olive Hill, appeared in Carter Circuit Court Monday.

All three, along with Terry Mock and Joni Staggs, were indicted on March 30, 2012, on one count of engaging in organized crime, a Class B. felony.

Larry and Terry Mock also were indicted on one count of possessing a firearm by a convicted felon, a Class C felony.

The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Carter County Sheriff's Department. A year-long investigation led the sheriff to raid an illegal bar on Jordan Fork Road in Olive Hill alongside FADE officers.

Terry Mock was arrested in the raid and was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, conspiracy to promote gambling, permitting gambling and illegal sale of alcohol in a dry territory.

Deputies seized 16 firearms, three jars of moonshine, 33 cases of beer, 83 bottles of assorted whiskey and drinks, three slot machines, cash and marijuana.

The ongoing investigation led to charges against the other individuals.

Commonwealth's Attorney Brandon Ison had filed a motion to consolidate the trials of Larry and Patricia Mock, who are represented by Michael Curtis, with that of McGlone, represented by Robin Webb.

The motion was sustained by Judge Rebecca Phillips and a trial date set for June 24. A final pre-trial conference will be held June 2.

Webb indicated that she intends to file a motion for suppression, although the context of the motion is at this time is unknown. A suppression hearing will be scheduled once the motion is filed.

Terry Mock pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for testifying for the Commonwealth.

Staggs was arrested and released on bond. She failed to appear for her Sept. 17, 2012, arraignment and has not been seen since.

Anyone with information on Staggs is asked to contact the nearest law enforcement agency.
