Six previously sealed indictments from Tuesday’s grand jury have become part of the public record following recent arrests.

On Tuesday, six indictments were released after the grand jury session. More were indicted, but will remain secret until they are served.

Highland County Prosecutor Anneka Collins told The Times-Gazette Tuesday that “a number of other cases were presented and warrants issued; however, the indictments will remain sealed until those charged have been arrested.”

She added that indictments are sometimes sealed for a variety of reasons that include victim safety, confidential informant safety, or if the person charged is a flight risk.

The previously sealed indictments served as of Wednesday included one charging a Greenfield man with a total of eight felonies.

Nicholas Brown, 28, was indicted on four counts of fifth-degree felony possession of heroin, three counts of fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school, and one count of third-degree felony aggravated trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a school.

Also indicted were:

• Shawn Parr, 32, Greenfield, charged with third-degree felony aggravated trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a school zone, fourth-degree felonies of trafficking in marijuana in the vicinity of a school zone and trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a school zone, fourth-degree felony trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a juvenile, and fifth-degree felony aggravated possession of drugs.

• Daniel Butcher, 31, Greenfield, charged with two counts each of fifth-degree felony possession of heroin and fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school zone.

• Brittany Sherbert, 30, Greenfield, charged with two counts of fourth-degree felony trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a school zone and two counts of fifth-degree felony possession of heroin.

• Matthew Jackson, 27, Greenfield, charged with fifth-degree felony trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance. Court records show that he was indicted last month in a different case on a charge of second-degree felony burglary.

• Cassandra Taylor, 32, Greenfield, charged with fourth-degree felony trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a juvenile.
