A Barbourville man facing 12 counts of first-degree wanton endangerment related to a bomb appeared in Knox County Circuit Court Friday.
Glenn David Powell, 66, was indicted in June 2012 with those counts, as well as advertising obscene material, menacing, third-degree terroristic threatening, resisting arrest, receiving a stolen firearm and theft by unlawful taking.
Powell remains free on bond.
He appeared before Circuit Judge Tom Jensen with his attorney, Warren Scoville, for a pretrial conference.
After some discussion with the Commonwealth attorney, another pretrial conference was set for April 5.
In March 2012, Powell allegedly was found in possession of a pipe bomb. Those considered endangered if the bomb had exploded were Knox County Sheriff John Pickard, deputies Chad Wagner, Claude Hudson and Keith Liford, Kentucky State Police Trooper Jim Adkins, and Barbourville Police officers Steve Owens, Brian Senters and Chief Mike Broughton.
Others potentially in harm’s way include Brad Brasher and Todd Tremaine with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Mike Mitchell and Gerald Baker, with Knox County EMS.
No trial date for Powell has yet been scheduled.
