Thursday, June 14, 2001

The Lawrence County Grand Jury met Monday and Tuesday, returning 15 indictments. Included in true bills filed in court Wednesday morning were four secret indictments charging several persons with criminal non-support, said county prosecutor J.B. Collier Jr.

Grand jurors can order the court to keep names and specifics of cases secret to prevent suspects from fleeing before arrests or warrants are served. The four cases are a joint effort of the Lawrence County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the prosecutor’s office, Collier said.
