NEWPORT-During its two day session this week, the grand jury considered 165 criminal cases, returning 95 indictments, 44 sealed presentments, 22 unsealed presentments, and four no true bills.

Grand jurors also returned four additional presentments against a local woman on Tuesday, who was indicted on Monday for violation of the state compulsory school attendance laws.

Miranda Marie Ellison Shropshire, 27, of Comanche Drive, who is identified as "a parent, guardian, or [adult] who has control of the child" is charged with two counts of violation of the state compulsory school attendance law for two children, who are identified in the indictment only by their initials.
