Man guilty of battery, possession

November 04, 1993

Carroll County Circuit Court Judge Raymond E. Beck yesterday found a 40-year-old Taneytown man guilty of one count of battery and one count of possession of marijuana.

Judge Beck ordered Robert Lee Hicks, of Courtland Drive, to undergo a presentencing investigation and a psychological evaluation.

On June 13, Mr. Hicks attacked his girlfriend, Sherry Lee Tyler, in her home in the 4000 block of Francis Scott Key Highway near Taneytown.

The marijuana charge stems from a search of that home on Jan. 13 in which officers turned up one-eighth of an ounce of marijuana, two partially smoked marijuana cigarettes, some rolling papers and a .38-caliber handgun.

Sentencing was set for Jan. 5.
