Lily man indicted on sex charges

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A Lily man who has been incarcerated since last month on sex-related charges was indicted Friday.

Condy O. Irvin, 55, of 700 Walnut Road in Lily, was named in an eight-count indictment by a Laurel grand jury for sexual involvement with two minors under 16 years old.

Irvin now faces charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, incest, and first-degree sexual abuse against a child who was nine years old and a second child who was barely 13 years old. According to the indictment, Irvin exposed both children to sexual contact on July 15 of last year.

Irvin was arrested on March 4 and remains jailed on a $250,000 bond. He is scheduled for a pretrial hearing in Laurel Circuit Court on May 16.

Other persons indicted included:

• Kermit Bowling, 68, of 824 Kentucky Boulevard in Hazard, was indicted for his fourth offense of driving under the influence on Jan. 9. This is Bowling’s fourth arrest for driving under the influence since March 2009. His priors include that arrest in Pulaski County, another offense in Laurel County on April 22, 2009, and another DUI arrest in Laurel County on Nov. 29, 2013.

• Jason Hubbard, 39, of Ky. 3439 Full Moon Court in Barbourville, was indicted for theft by deception over $500 but less than $10,000 stemming from an incident on Feb. 18 of this year. Hubbard is accused of selling a stolen Yamaha motorcycle and a 2008 Yamaha ATV to Adrenaline Cycles for $1,975. Hubbard allegedly claimed that the motorcycle and ATV belonged to him.

He is also charged with being a first-degree persistent felony offender, with three prior felony convictions. Hubbard was convicted of first-degree possession of a controlled substance on June 5, 2007 in Knox County, with that sentence running at the same time as a Bell County felony conviction for the same offense. He received a three-year sentence for the Bell County charge and a one-year sentence for the Knox County charge. In addition, Hubbard was convicted of first-degree possession of a controlled substance in Knox County in June 2012, for which he received a three-year sentence. Hubbard was arrested on April 1 and remains in the Laurel County Detention Center on $5,000 cash bond.
