SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Grand Jury returned more than 100 indictments in its December session.

The panel or randomly selected Sevier County residents meets each month to review cases and determine whether those cases should proceed to Sevier County Circuit Court or the charges should be dropped.

The grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence and generally does not hear a defense of the accused. It determines whether a preponderance of evidence presented by prosecutors indicates the defendant committed a crime.

If it does, the panel returns a true bill. Cases where the defendant had already been charged are released in the grand jury list that is shared here.

In cases where prosecutors are presenting new evidence or seeking new charges, the grand jury returns presentments that are generally sealed from the public until the defendant is arrested.

If the panel finds there is not enough evidence, it returns no true bill, which means the charges are dropped.

Names can appear more than once if a person was indicted on more than one set of charges.

The grand jury returned the following findings:
