The Hardin County grand jury returned 18 indictments last week, many of them involving drug possession.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Shane Young said the high number of indictments could be contributed to a backlog of cases.
Traditionally, the court system slows down in December, Young said, which creates an influx of cases during the first few weeks of January.
According to state law, the grand jury must indict a defendant within 60 days or he or she is released from jail.
“We’re getting them in before the 60 days,” Young said.
