Richland County Prosecutor releases September indictment list

Richland County Assistant Prosecutor Brandon Pigg said that on July 29, in the 300 block of Remy Road in Mansfield, a victim in the incident arranged for an exchange of a child.

"Allegedly, an argument transpired and a gun was used," Pigg said.

On Aug. 2, Anderson is alleged to have had a firearm when he was found by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

In another case, Brandon Barker, 38, of Mansfield, has been indicted with charges stemming from a July 14 incident. Pigg said Barker has been charged with failure to comply with order or signal from a police officer and vehicular assault. Both charges are third-degree felonies. 

Ohio Highway Patrol got a description of a car that was allegedly driving irrationally, Pigg said.

"It was located on Park Avenue West at a gas station," Pigg said. "Troopers allegedly observed a man exit the car, go to the gas station and come back out. They followed the car and saw it making many driving infractions.

"A traffic stop was initiated and the car didn't stop. After following at high speeds, the car eventually crashed into a home (on the 800 block of Grace Street)."

Pigg said one person was in the home, and was taken to the hospital.

Barker is facing a maximum of six years in prison.

In another case, Kameshia Moxley, 22, of Mansfield is indicted with assault after an alleged incident on July 5. 

Pigg said Moxley was at John Todd Park in Mansfield when she and a 27-year-old female got into an argument. 

Pigg said the state alleges Moxley stabbed the female victim and she was treated in a local hospital. She is facing a maximum of eight years in prison.
