Electioneering allegation investigated, two indicted for rape

The May-June Christian County Grand Jury submitted its final report Friday and says it turned over a possible case of electioneering during the May primary to the Kentucky Attorney General’s office.

The grand jurors were informed of two potential instances by County Clerk Mike Kem and Sheriff Livy Leavell, who presented an elections report following the primary elections, as is required by law. While one was unsubstantiated, another one was sent to Attorney General Andy Beshear’s office for further review.

The investigation was ongoing at the time the May-June grand jury session ended.

Indicted for three counts of second-degree rape, second-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse is 41-year old Norman Baker of Oak Grove. The indictment alleges that between the dates of August 8 through August 13 2017 he had sexual intercourse with victim under 14 years of age on three separate occasions.  It also alleges he fondled a second underage female victim over whom he had authority between October and November of 2017.

Indicted for third-degree rape is Marcoreyon Tandy, who allegedly had sexual intercourse with a victim under the age of 18 between January and February of 2018, with whom he had a position of authority or trust.
