Two men indicted on charges of burglary

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Two young Marshall County men were indicted by the grand jury last week on a charge of burglary, for a theft they allegedly committed this spring.

On May 30, Steven J. Fulmer, 21, of Chapel Hill, assisted by Brandon C. Baker, 20, of Lewisburg, entered the garage of a residence on Caney Creek Lane, Chapel Hill, by climbing in through a back window, according to the arrest warrant signed by Marshall County Sheriff's Detective Keith Jolley.

Once inside, Jolley wrote, they took an Xbox 360, five games and two controllers. These were later sold for $150, of which Baker received $50. The original Sheriff's report of the theft listed the value of the stolen items at $470.

Meanwhile, Gerald S. Kosirog Jr., 25, was indicted on two charges, both relating to violation of restrictions placed on him as a registered sex offender. In July, Kosirog admitted to his parole officer, Charles Brannan, that he'd "been around" his victim, thereby violating both the terms of his community correction order and the residential and work restrictions for sex offenders, according to the two affidavits of complaint signed by Brannan.

Also indicted last week was William R. Hurt, 47, of St. Anne Street. He's named in a four-count indictment charging him with driving after having been declared a habitual motor vehicle offender, possession of cocaine for resale, resisting arrest, and driving on a revoked license (third offence).

The charges arose from an incident on Aug. 6, when Hurt and a friend were found parked in the Fire Lane at Wal-Mart.

Indictment does not mean a person is guilty. That's determined by a trial, or by a guilty plea.
