An Anderson County woman has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of aggravated robbery, especially aggravated kidnapping with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Court officials say 27-year-old Lindsay Elaine Pressley of Claxton and her husband, 31-year-old Richard Norman Pressley, are accused of luring a McMinn County man to their home by way of an ad on backpage.com, promising sexual favors in exchange for money. The victim showed up and talked to Lindsay Pressley when her husband reportedly came into the room armed with a gun and tied the victim up taking $600 from him. The victim managed to get free and escape the home. Lindsay Pressley is scheduled for arraignment January 22 in Anderson County Criminal Court. Richard Pressley recently pleaded not guilty to the same charges.
