MARK HOGG

A man indicted this month on felony charges of assaulting his mother and brother-in-law and dragging his injured mother from the house was arrested for the same incident earlier, but only charged with a misdemeanor.

Mark Gideon Hogg, 47, of 13428 Main Street Loop, Blackey, is charged with seven counts related to an incident on March 27 at the home of his sister, Susan Campbell, and her husband, James Campbell, on Wick Drive, Cornettsville.

According to the indictment, Hogg intentionally caused serious injuries to his mother and to James Campbell, and damaged a bathroom door in the house owned by the Campbells. The indictment says Hogg rammed his motorcycle into the bumper of the Campbells’ pickup truck, and wrestled with James Campbell, causing serious physical injuries to James Campbell. The indictment says he then wrestled with his mother, Audrey Hogg, after he had already seriously injured her, and attempted to drag her outside and “place her battered and badly injured body on the motorbike to flee.”

Police did not arrest Hogg at the time. The indictment comes as a result of testimony by the Campbells before the grand jury.

Hogg is charged with second- degree assault against Audrey Hogg and James Campbell, second-degree criminal mischief for causing more than $500 damage to the Campbells’ property, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, and being a second-degree persistent felony offender.

Court records show domestic violence orders issued in 2009 and ‘10 intended to protect Hogg’s mother from him.

He was also indicted on charges of third-degree assault on a police officer and menacing in March 2013 while deputies and a Kentucky State Police trooper were investigating social media comments Hogg had allegedly posted after the Sandy Hook school shooting, and complaints from neighbors about him shooting a semi-automatic rifle on the creek bank near the Blackey Head Start.

Hogg received a 90-day suspended sentence and was ordered to undergo monthly toxicology tests, and not to change his mental health provider.

Hogg is being held in the Letcher County Jail.
