Grand jury indicts

July 10, 2013 — An Ohio man found out the hard way that the TV car commercials about the sign and drive event can lead to jail time.

Gregory C. Cox, 32, of Ironton, Ohio, was indicted on May 2 on one count of failure to make required disposition of property, a Class C felony.

According to the indictment, Cox allegedly took a 2013 Dodge Challenger for a test drive on June 14 from Kentucky Automotive Group in Grayson.

The vehicle, which has a value over $10,000, was not returned to the owner.

Also indicted were:

Jesse L. Swartz, 29, of Salt Lick, one count of first degree first offense trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree possession of a controlled substance, and first degree possession of a controlled substance, opiates, all Class D felonies. Swartz was also indicted on two Class A misdemeanors, possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed and deadly weapon, and one Class B misdemeanor, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant.

Jerrod Knipp, 30, of Campbellsville, on two counts of flagrant non-support, with arrearages in the amount of $12,537.50 and $3,378, both Class D felonies.

Jeremy Knipp, 34, of Olive Hill, one count of flagrant non-support, with arrearages in the amount of $11,100, a Class D felony.

Terry Blankenship, 32, of Georgetown, one count of flagrant non-support, with arrearages in the amount of $29,159.33, a Class D felony.

Anthony Morris, 43, of Grayson, one count of flagrant non-support with arrearages in the amount of $15,065.77, a Class D felony.

Johnny Oliver, 42, of Olive Hill, one count of flagrant non-support with arrearages in the amount of $30,103.88, a Class D felony.

Michael Sargent, 36, of Partridge, one count of flagrant non-support with arrearages in the amount of $27,933, a Class D felony.

An indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
