Men named in 17-count indictment appear in court

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

One of two men named on a 17-count indictment in November was arraigned Friday in Knox County Circuit Court.

Colonel Golden, 36, of Flat Lick, and Jackie Smith, 35, of Barbourville, were both named on the multi-count indictment for charges incurred Oct. 10 of last year.

However, Golden had yet to be in custody for those charges in November.

During their court appearance before Judge Tom Jensen Friday, it was learned both defendants will be represented by the public defender’s office.

The first six counts indict the pair for separate charges of second-degree forgery. The first count alleges the offense occurred at Spur Oil Company when they reportedly signed the name Darla Brown to an electronic transfer slip in the amount of $525 drawn on a Forcht Bank account.

The second count alleges the offense occurred at Creek Mart when they reportedly again signed Brown’s name authorizing a $46.50 deduction from that same account.

The third count alleges the offense occurred at Walmart when the pair allegedly signed the same name on an electronic transfer slip authorizing a payment of $462.92 to the store.

The fourth count alleges the offense happened when they reportedly again went to Walmart and signed Brown’s name on an electronic transfer slip authorizing a $465.68 payment to the store.

The fifth count alleges the offense occurred at Walmart again, but this time the pair allegedly used Brown’s Discover credit card to purchase $61.67 in goods.

The sixth count indicts the pair for allegedly using that same victim’s Discover card for a $99.53 payment to Shell.

Counts seven through 12 indict the pair for six separate charges of theft of identity of another without consent after allegedly using Brown’s information for their own personal benefit.

Count 13 indicts the pair for theft or receipt of stolen debit/credit cards by allegedly knowingly and unlawfully possessing Brown’s Forcht Bank debit card and the Discover credit card.

Count 14 indicts Golden and Smith for first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument after they allegedly possessed or uttered a government check written to Brown for $68.

Count 15 indicts them for receiving stolen property valued at less than $500 after allegedly receiving and possessing the victim’s $68 government check.

Count 16 indicts Golden for being a first-degree persistent felony offender after two previous felony convictions. The first conviction came in August 1997 when he received an 18-month sentence for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $300. The latest conviction for Golden came in March 2010, when he received four years for his first offense of first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Count 17 indicts Smith for being a first-degree persistent felony offender as well after three previous convictions. The first conviction came in April 1997 in Fayette Circuit Court when Smith received a five-year sentence probated for five years for receiving stolen property valued at more than $300. The second conviction came in December 2010 in Knox Circuit Court when a three-year sentence was handed down for second-degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500. On that same date Smith was convicted of a third felony – second degree burglary and theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500, which earned an eight-year sentence.

During Friday’s court appearance, both defendants attempted to get their bonds changed. Smith requested for a $15,000 property bond — which Jensen denied. He remains jailed in the Knox County Detention Center under a $2,500 cash bond.

Golden requested a $20,000 property bond — which Jensen also denied. His bond for these charges is $10,000 fully-secured.

Golden remains jailed in the Clay County Detention Center. According to JailTracker records, he is jailed there on a series of unrelated charges, including resisting arrest, receiving stolen property, first-degree fleeing or evading police and DUI. For those charges he is in the Clay County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.
