BONHAM — The Fannin County Grand Jury in late May reviewed evidence in 33 cases presented for its consideration, and it returned 33 true bills, District Attorney Richard Glaser reported.

Last month’s indictments bring the yearly total for 2021 to 174, Glaser said.

Glaser notes that an indictment is a formal charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt and that all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Cases include:

Sammy Don Adams, 34, of Bonham: Possession of a controlled substance.

Alexis Aranday, 19, of Bonham: Possession of marijuana.

Richard Dylan Burrow, 41, of Bonham: Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
