CORBIN —

— Elbert McFadden, 38, of London, was indicted for first-degree bail jumping after he allegedly failed to appear in Laurel Circuit Court on felony charges pursuant to a bail bond on Jan. 17. He was arrested and booked into the Laurel County Correctional Center Feb. 3, where he remains jailed on an unlisted bond. JailTracker records indicate he faces one count of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.

— Elvis P. Profitt, 37, of East Bernstadt, received a five-count indictment Friday for charges incurred Jan. 11. The first count indicts him for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, after he was allegedly found in possession of less than two grams of methamphetamine for the purpose of sale. The second count indicts him for possession of drug paraphernalia. The third count indicts him for improper display of a Kentucky registration plate. The fourth count indicts him for failure to produce an insurance card. The fifth count indicts him for being a first-degree persistent felony offender after three previous convictions. In February 1996 he was convicted in Pulaski Circuit Court for theft by deception, for which he was sentenced to one year probated for one year. In April 2011 he was convicted in Laurel Circuit Court for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, for which he received a five-and-a-half-year sentence. The following month in Knox Circuit Court, he received that same sentence for another conviction on second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. Proffitt remains jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center under two separate cash bonds — one for $25,000 and the other for $50,000.

— Amy J. Hammock, AKA Amy Smith, Amy Tuttle, Amy Mooney, 37, of London, was named on a 15-count indictment Friday in Laurel Circuit Court. The first 14 counts charge her with separate counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument involving checks bearing the alleged forged signature of Benny Hibbard written on a bank account at L & N Credit Union. The first count alleges the offense occurred Aug. 28, and the check was written to Kentucky University in the amount of $108.41. The second count alleges the offense occurred Sept. 23, and the check was written to Mountain View Family Practice in the amount of $125. The third count alleges the offense occurred Oct. 10, and the check was written to London Utility Commission in the amount of $100. The fourth count alleges the offense occurred Oct. 18, and the check was written to Git-N-Go in the amount of $225. The fifth count alleges the offense occurred Nov. 3, and the check was written to Moberly's Market in the amount of $100. The sixth count alleges the offense occurred Nov. 4, and the check was written to Sav-A-Lot grocery in the amount of $130.81. The seventh count alleges the offense occurred Dec. 22, and the check was written to herself in the amount of $120. The eighth count alleges the offense occurred Dec. 26, and the check was written to Moberly's Market in the amount of $125. The ninth count alleges the offense occurred Dec. 26, and the check was written to Moberly's Market in the amount of $125. The 10th count alleges the offense occurred Dec. 27, and the check was written to Moberly's Market in the amount of $40. The 11th count alleges the offense occurred Dec. 31, and the check was written to Liberty Market in the amount of $40. The 12th count alleges the offense occurred Jan. 2, and the check was written to Liberty Market in the amount of $40. The 13th count alleges the offense occurred Jan. 7, and the check was written to Moberly's Market in the amount of $115. The 14th count alleges the offense occurred Jan. 8, and the check was written to Liberty Market in the amount of $35. The 15th count on Hammock's indictment charges her with being a second-degree persistent felony offender after three previous convictions in Laurel Circuit Court. In January 2006 she received a three-year sentence probated for five years for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. In June 2010, she received a one-year sentence for first-degree bail jumping. Two months later, she received a two-year sentence for theft by deception, cold checks under $10,000. There are no JailTracker records indicating she has been booked on these charges — she was released from the Laurel County Correctional Center Feb. 4 on a $2,500 surety bond for unrelated charges.
