Grand jury indicts two

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

At their August session, the Marshall County grand jury issued indictments for two people who had failed to appear in court as scheduled.

Marcus Canty, 39, Columbia, was to be on trial in Circuit Court on July 30. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine) with intent to sell and deliver, a class B felony. A-Action Bonding will forfeit $25,000 if Canty is not brought to justice by February next year, and Cochran Bonding stands to lose $5,000.

Sandra Lynn Forte, 43, Nashville, failed to appear in Circuit Court on Aug. 5. The crimes she was charged with were burglary, a class D felony, and two counts of theft, a misdemeanor. Forte is being held without bond in Marshall County Jail, pending appearance in Circuit Court.

Tiffany N. Fink was stopped by police for driving recklessly on March 28, but this was her third offense of driving on a revoked license. Fink was declared a Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender in Bedford County in Sept. 2007. Fink is free, having made a $4,500 bond. On an affidavit of indigency, Fink stated her birth date as Feb. 22, 1983, but on her jail intake sheet it is listed as April 5, 1971. Her address is shown once as Chapel Hill and once as Unionville.
