Two Radcliff men charged in the Aug. 24 robbery of a Radcliff fast-food restaurant are set to be arraigned today in Hardin Circuit Court.
Adam C. Charney, 30, and Richard C. Slaughter, 29, were indicted Thursday by a Hardin County grand jury.
Charney faces charges of complicity to commit first-degree robbery and first-degree persistent felony offense. Slaughter is charged with complicity to commit first-degree robbery, menacing and trafficking in a synthetic cannabinoid agonist or piperazines.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt. The defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
According to the Radcliff Police Department, a suspect carrying a “small bat” approached the manager of the Sonic Drive-in on North Dixie Boulevard as he was leaving to make a bank deposit at the close of business.
Police said the suspect took the money and fled.
When officers searched the area, they found the money and discovered Charney in vehicle about 100 yards from the scene, according to police. A Sonic hat and Slaughter’s ID also were in the car.
Police later located Slaughter, who admitted to the robbery during an interview, according to RPD.
Both men remain lodged at Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of $75,000 cash bonds.
According to court records, Charney was on parole at the time of the offense while Slaughter was on pre-trial diversion.
First-degree robbery is a Class B felony, which is punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison if found guilty, according to Kentucky Revised Statutes.
