An Emanuel County grand jury indicted 10 individuals last week. The October 2021 term saw the district attorney’s office present 10 bills of indictments for consideration, and the grand jury returned true bills for all cases.
William Yankton Nasworthy was indicted on one count failure to register as a sex offender.
Lashaun Dean Black was indicted on one count trafficking methamphetamine, one count possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, one count possession of drug-related objects, and one count abandonment of dangerous drugs.
Sean Maceo Cuyler was indicted on one count aggravated assault, one count simple battery, and one count third-degree child cruelty.
Corderro Javante Johnson was indicted on one count aggravated battery.
Donald Irwin Marsh was indicted on one count privacy invasion and one count distributing obscene material.
Yolanda Nicole Artis was indicted on one count second-degree child cruelty.
Keldrin Marquann Akins, also known as Rico Blackwell, was indicted on one count terroristic threats and one count giving false information to a law enforcement officer.
Darius Keith Allen was indicted on one count trafficking methamphetamine, one count possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and one count speeding.
Two others, Brian Antonio Coleman and Stephanie Rae Jean, were indicted by the grand jury as well. Look for a separate story on these indictments in the October 27 edition of The Crossroads Chronicle as time constraints did not allow for the background details on these cases to be finalized for print this week.
Paperwork received from the clerk’s office on Monday, October 18, also indicates the grand jury will conduct the inspection of county offices and buildings. Therefore, grand jurors formed committees to conduct that business. The groups consist of the Sheriff’s Office and Jail Committee; the Courthouse Committee; the Board of Education Committee, the Hospital Committee, and the Roads and Bridges Committee.
There being no further business, the grand jury recessed until November 9, 2021 at 8:30 a.m.
