Three people accused of felony crimes were arraigned in Scott Circuit Court on Monday afternoon, May 9.

Initial hearings were conducted by Judge Roger Duvall for defendants Jimmy Darrell White, 32, Austin; Michael A. Caudill Jr., 45, Charlestown; and Dianna J. Sipe, 52, Scottsburg. Their cases are not related. All were filed with the court on May 9.

White is charged with Level 5 battery and Class A misdemeanors of invasion of privacy and theft. Caudill's charges include Level 5 battery, Class A misdemeanors of resisting law enforcement and possession of drug paraphernalia and a Class B misdemeanor of possession of marijuana.

Sipe's charges are Level 5 battery, Class A misdemeanor battery and Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

On May 6, Indiana State Trooper Mark LaMaster was dispatched to the Kentuckiana Medical Center in Clarksville to talk to a man who said he was attacked by Caudill at a residence on Concord Road near Lexington.

The man had injuries to his abdomen, legs and one arm from the alleged attack.

Trp. LaMaster Trooper Zach Lavery and Deputies Joe Guarneri and Shawn Mayer accompanied Trp. LaMaster to the home early that same evening, finding Caudill and another man present. Both attempted to flee but were caught by the officers. A bat and a small bag filled with raw marijuana were confiscated.

Both Caudill and his friend, Robert J. Siewert, were transported to the Scott County Security Center. Siewert's case for misdemeanor resisting law enforcement was filed in Superior Court, and his jury trial was scheduled July 18.

White's charges involve an incident in Austin on May 7. White allegedly struck a nine-year-old boy on the arm with a stick and stole the child's bicycle. Austin Patrolman Scott McCoskey noted that White had also apparently violated a protective order issued to protect the child.

White denied the incident occurred as he was taken into custody. The bike was found at his residence.

Sipe's charge of Level 5 battery involved an alleged argument between Sipe and a female relative over the relative's boyfriend being at Sipe's parents' home. Sipe allegedly struck the other woman with a handgun. When Sipe was located, she told Deputies Jac Sanders and Justin Cheatham that the relative had spit in her face and was causing her parents problems.

Not guilty pleas were entered for all defendants, and an initial jury trial date of September 12 was set for Sipe, with White and Caudill receiving an initial trial date of September 19.

Bail for each was set at $50,000 by corporate surety bond or $10,000 cash. Sipe's attorney requested her bond be lowered, but Chief Deputy Prosecutor Chris Owens requested a consultation with the alleged victim before allowing the motion to go forward.

Public defenders will be appointed to each of the men's cases.
