In October of 2009, the Chronicle reported on the arrest of four men, two from Macon County, involved in the brutal assault and robbery of an elderly Mennonite man and woman in Allen County, Kentucky.

Last week one of those men, 38-year-old Harley Elmer Cherry of Lafayette, received a 60-year prison sentence in the Allen County Circuit Courtroom of Judge Janet Crocker.

According to information reported in the Citizen-Times (Scottsville, Ky.), Cherry was said to be the ringleader behind the attack by witnesses and co-defendants. His arrest last year, along with the arrest of the three co-defendants, was a joint venture between the Allen County and Macon County Sheriffs Departments – all made just hours after the violent crimes occurred.
