The Brown County Grand Jury met recently and handed down indictments to three area individuals, including Austin Finley.

Finley, 20, of Ripley, was indicted on one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a fourth-degree felony. Finley is alleged to have engaged in sexual conduct with another person, according to the indictment, whose name was not revealed in order to protect their identity. The other person was not the spouse of the offender and was between the ages of 13 and 16, according to the indictment. Finley was 19 years old at the time of the alleged sexual conduct.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest but as of press time, Finley had not been arrested.

Finley has previously been cited for trespassing in 2014 and had pleaded guilty to domestic violence in Brown County Municipal Court, agreeing to a suspended jail sentence and a year of probation, as well a drug and alcohol assessment and a mental health assessment, according to court records.

If Finley is found guilty, he could face six months to a year-and-a-half in prison.

Also indicted were:

Robert G. Lewis, 32, of Ripley, on one count of having weapons while under disability, a third-degree felony. The charge also includes a three-year firearm specification.

Brandon Overstake, 31, of Hillsboro, on one count of aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, and aggravated trafficking in drugs, a fourth-degree felony. Both counts come with the specification for forfeiture of an automobile in a drug case.
