JONESBORO — A Decatur man out on bond from DeKalb County was indicted Wednesday on multiple counts related to alleged counterfeit merchandise and forgery.

Mamdou Lamarana Diallo, 19, was indicted for the sale and possession of counterfeit Nike, Ralph Lauren and Louis Viutton items worth at least $10,000. He was also indicted on four counts of forgery in the second degree.

Online records show Diallo was released from DeKalb County Jail in October after being arrested there for robbery. He has previous arrests related to alleged counterfeit goods, according to records.

Carl Mitchell Wright Jr. was indicted for possession of a hoax device, fleeing or attempting to elude police, having an unregistered vehicle and a seat belt violation. Prosecutors allege Wright had a green cylinder pipe wrapped in duct tape to simulate an explosive device March 12.

Tomas Ramirez, 32, of Morrow was indicted on three counts of child molestation and two of sexual battery involving one alleged victim. He is being held in the Clayton County Jail.

James Matthew Lovingood Jr. was indicted for terroristic threats against Gregory Patterson March 21. He also faces charges of simple battery and simple battery under the Family Violence Act for allegedly pulling his mother's arm out of a sling, and for obstruction of a police officer.

James Edward Williams was indicted for accepting more than $4,000 in unemployment benefits while working for Kelly Construction from Dec. 12, 2009, to April 23, 2011.

Michael Lee Ferguson and Deshon Roberts were indicted separately for alleged assaults on each other. Each face aggravated assault and affray charges related to an alleged March 22 incident involving a box cutter and scissors.

Natalie Dmoi Jackson was indicted for making a false statement to get a drivers license. Prosecutors allege Jackson used the identity of someone else May 7, 2009, to get the license. However, the alleged deception wasn't discovered until Feb. 6, 2012.

Ronald Charles Beil Sr. was indicted for first degree child cruelty, battery and battery under the Family Violence Act. Prosecutors allege he beat or cut his son's head so badly it needed three stitches.

Corey Dee Jones was indicted for aggravated assault for allegedly using a metal pipe against Caleb Jefferies, a person under 18. Jones also faces charges of second degree child cruelty and two counts of battery under the Family Violence Act.

All defendants should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
