The names of nine more people indicted last week by the October term of the Obion County grand jury have been disclosed following arraignments Monday in Obion County Circuit Court.
A list of 48 indictments was released Thursday afternoon by Circuit Court Clerk Harry Johnson’s office. Among them were nine indictments that remained either partially or totally sealed, or secret, pending the notification of those charged.
The additional indictments made public during the arraignments include:
• Bryan Neil Washburn — vehicular homicide (two counts).
• Phillip Dwayne Abbott — failure to appear (two counts).
• Lashanda Terrell Chambers (named in an indictment with Kevin Sherill Anderson) — aggravated child abuse (two counts) and aggravated assault (Anderson only), aggravated child neglect or endangerment (two counts) and aggravated assault (Chambers only).
• Robert George Blakemore — aggravated burglary and theft.
• Mason Lynn Courtney — aggravated burglary and theft.
• Patrick Lamond Depriest — possession of a controlled substance with intent and simple possession.
• Travis Lynn Fraley — statutory rape.
• Daniel Leon Young (named in an indictment with Tommy Lynn Rasberry) — possession of a controlled substance with intent and manufacture of a controlled substance.
• Jerald Glen Rodgers — fraudulent obtaining of TennCare controlled substance benefits.
The grand jury convenes three times a year in Obion County to hear evidence of criminal allegations to determine if charges should be levied through indictment. Many of the cases presented have been waived to the grand jury or bound over from General Sessions Court, while some of them have been presented directly to the grand jury for consideration.
