The recent Defiance County Grand Jury has indicted 12 persons after cases were presented by Prosecuting Attorney Morris Murray, including 38 year old Robert C. Salisbury of Edgerton for Attempted Rape and Gross Sexual Imposition. The alleged crimes occurred on Fountain Street in Hicksville during November 2019.
Also indicted was 36 year old Derek Brandi and 36 year old Audrey Brandi, both of Defiance. Derek Brandi was indicted for Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs, and Aggravated Possession of Drugs. Audrey Brandi was indicted for Aggravated Possession of Drugs, and for Permitting Drug Abuse. We want to correct a previous report, Audrey Brandi was NOT indicted for Trafficking in Drugs. We apologize for the error. The case allegedly involved the drug Methamphetamine.
Two subjects were also indicted for Abduction, and Domestic Violence: They are 36 year old Albert D. Luellen of Defiance; and 35 year old Dustin L.M. Gonzales of Defiance in separate cases. The Luellen case allegedly occurred on Latty Street in Defiance; and the Gonzales case stems from a crime on Smith Street in Hicksville.
