Jarrell was among 66 people named in true bills decided by the sequestered jury panel for the October term of circuit court in Berkeley County since Tuesday, according to Prosecuting Attorney Pamela J. Games-Neely's office.

· Dustin A. Parsons, 21, of 938 All-American Way, Martinsburg, on nine counts of third-degree sexual assault and two counts of delivery of a controlled substance between August and September 2006 and March 2007.

· Donna J. Stoner, 21, of 1896 Broad Lane, Falling Waters, on five counts of forgery and two counts of conspiracy in September 2006.

An indictment merely reflects the grand jury's conclusion that the accused probably committed the crime or crimes in question, but it is not evidence of guilt.
