Grand Jury indicts 51

Corsicana — Editor's note: In the story “Grand Jury indicts 51” that appeared in the Friday, March 22 edition of the Daily Sun, the subject listed as “Terry Knight” is further identified as Terry Lynn Knight of Ennis, who was indicted on charges of possession of a controlled substance over four grams/under 200 grams with intent to deliver, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The Navarro County Grand Jury met Thursday, indicting 51 people on charges ranging from drug possession to aggravated robbery. An indictment is a not a finding of guilt or innocence, but is the opinion of the jury that enough evidence exists to take a case to court.

Among the people indicted were Jamie Davis and Jason Poindexter, who are charged with aggravated robbery for allegedly stealing a cash machine from Arizona Charlie’s Bingo in Rice in late January, according to District Attorney Lowell Thompson.

Mark Green, who had been indicted before, was re-indicted. Derrick Moss is charged with aggravated assault for allegedly attacking someone else with a knife at the Waffle House. Rodney Spahn’s aggravated assault charge stemmed from an altercation between two former classmates who got into a fight on Christmas day at Napoli’s. In that case, the victim received a broken jaw, Thompson said.

Two cases of sexual assault of a child were filed. In both cases, the victims knew the attacker.
