Two Western Kentucky Men Facing Multiple Charges Appear in Court

Two men facing charges in McCracken County appeared in court on Monday. Court records reveal that Bobby J. Copeland and Joshua S. Meyer had pretrial conferences in Circuit Court. Meyer faces multiple counts of rape, sodomy and unlawful transaction with a minor, along with one count of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. The charges stem from an April 2018 investigation into claims from two teenage girls from Tennessee that they were held against their will and sexually assaulted. Copeland faces multiple charges related to a vehicle and foot pursuit on May 21, following a traffic stop for suspected reckless driving. Sheriff’s detectives say he had meth, pills and marijuana. At the time of his arrest, Copeland had recently been released from prison. Copeland’s next pretrial conference is October 21 and Meyer’s next pre-trial conference is November 30.
