Grand jury hands down indictments

June 22, 2012

A Howard County grand jury handed down more than a dozen indictments in 118th District Court Thursday afternoon, including true bills for first-degree felony charges of attempted robbery and sexual assault of a child.

Among those indicted Thursday was 51-year-old Randy Joe Hurrington, currently being held at the Howard County Detention Center, who was true billed on a charge of attempted robbery, a first-degree felony (enhanced).

Hurrington was arrested May 10 after law enforcement officials allege he entered the Stripes convenience store on the Lamesa Highway and tried to steal the cash register.

According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the Big Spring Police Department, the store clerk was able to wrestle the register away from Hurrington, who then left the store on foot.

If convicted on first-degree felony charges, Hurrington could face five to 99 years to life in prison.
