Gray man named on separate five-count indictments

CORBIN —

By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

A Gray man was named on two separate five-count indictments in Knox County Circuit Court Friday.

Garfield Theadore Cox, 33, appeared to face several charges lodged against him.

The first indictment involves charges incurred March 11.

The first count of that indictment charges him with first-degree possession of a controlled substance after allegedly being found with a quantity of Oxycodone.

The second count indicts him for second-degree possession of a controlled substance after allegedly being found in possession of a quantity of Suboxone.

The third count indicts him for possession of marijuana.

The fourth count indicts Cox for possession of drug paraphernalia after allegedly being found in possession of several items commonly used to consume illegal narcotics.

The fifth count indicts him for being a first-degree persistent felony offender after three previous convictions in Knox Circuit Court.

The first felony conviction came in September 1998 when he received a three-year sentence probated for three years for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $300 and first-degree criminal mischief. Cox’s second felony conviction came in July 2001 when he was sentenced to three years for receiving stolen property valued at more than $300. His latest felony conviction came in April 2011 when he received a one-year sentence for first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

The second five-count indictment Cox received Friday includes a co-defendant, 32-year-old Brooke Nicole Mason, of the same Gray address as Cox.

The first count indicts the pair for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 after allegedly knowingly taking a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria from its owner.

The second count indicts them for first-degree criminal mischief for allegedly damaging the Ford causing more than $1,000 in repairs.

The third count indicts them both for leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly leaving a crash site in which the defendant was involved. Those three counts were for charges incurred July 29.

The fourth count indicts Cox for third-degree terroristic threatening after allegedly threatening to kill or cause serious physical injury to an unnamed victim on July 30. The fifth count also indicts Cox again for being a first-degree persistent felony offender.

Cox remains jailed in the Knox County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.

An indictment is a formal charge by a grand jury — it is not a conviction or an admission of guilt.

Other indicted Friday and their charges include:

Two women who allegedly fought each other May 11 were both named on separate indictments in Knox County Circuit Court Friday. Dora Couch, 39, of Barbourville, and Kathy Simpson, 37, of Flat Lick, were both indicted for fourth-degree assault. Couch’s charge came after she allegedly stabbed Simpson. Simpson’s charges stem from her allegedly striking Couch.

Four Corbin residents were named on a four-count indictment Friday. Robert G. Taylor, 69, Paul W. Tate, 48, Gregory A. Wyatt, 36, and Dollie Taylor, 43 all face fourth-degree assault charges stemming from an incident June 24. Robert Taylor, Tate and Wyatt were all named in the first three counts of the indictment for allegedly striking three separate individuals that day. Dollie Taylor, who resides at the same address as Robert Taylor, was named in the fourth count of the indictment for allegedly striking another individual.
