Well, that depends on The Free Lance–Star‘s definition of “recently” and “indicted”.

From The Fish Wrap:

The following people were indicted recently by a Caroline County grand jury:

[…]

Melissa Nicole Bentley, 23, Woodford, assault and battery against a family member

According to online court records, an indictment was sought against Melissa Nicole Bentley on October 1, but a true bill was not returned. I.e., she wasn’t indicted.

Michael Thomas Brockmyer, 41, Ruther Glen, sodomy

A Michael Thomas Brockmyer was indicted on January 2, 2008, for a count of rape and a count of forcible sodomy (not sodomy, which isn’t even against the law in Virginia anymore [or in the United States as a whole] after Lawrence v. Texas).

He pled nolo contendere to two counts of aggravated sexual battery on October 3.

[…]

Patrick Ryan Flaherty, 21, Stafford, grand larceny

Again, according to online court records, an indictment was sought against Patrick Ryan Flaherty on October 1, but a true bill was not returned. I.e., he wasn’t indicted.

They have some nerve publishing false information against someone with such a great Irish name.
