BREAKING NEWS: Sharps formally charged in Vigo County

Friday, November 2, 2007

The ink hasn't had time to dry on the formal charges filed by Vigo County Prosecutor Terry Modesitt against alleged rapist Larry J. Sharps in Vigo County Courthouse.

A few minutes ago, Sharps was formally charged with burglary-a class B felony, criminal confinement with deadly weapon-a class B felony and intimidation with deadly weapon-a class C felony.

Modesitt also filed for a habitual offender charge against Sharps.

"We wouldn't have filed for the charge if we weren't very confident in proving it," Modesitt said, adding that his office plans on pursuing a separate trial in Vigo County.

Sharps is currently in custody at the Clay County Justice Center for his alleged involvement in the abduction of a woman from her Terre Haute apartment at knifepoint early Sunday morning.
