Almost 400 cases set for arraignment next week

by Staff Reports / news@newnan.com

A Coweta County grand jury met on Jan. 6 and 7 for the January term of Coweta County Superior Court and indicted a whopping 391 people for 289 cases.

The majority of the cases involve drug-related arrests, thefts and burglaries, identity fraud arrests and assault and batteries. Some of these were very significant arrests in Coweta County last year, according to local authorities.

There are also cases involving more serious charges — these include murder, attempted murder, human trafficking for sexual servitude, rape and child molestation.

For a complete story regarding the list of indictments, see Thursday’s online and print editions of the The Newnan Times-Herald.
