The Greene County Grand Jury handed down 41 indictments against a Ruckersville man on Monday, June 10.

David E. Totten, 37, is facing 31 felony counts and 10 misdemeanor charges in relation to incidents involving four juveniles. Totten was arrested on Feb. 15 and has been held without bond at Central Virginia Regional Jail ever since.

Totten is facing 14 counts of felony sodomy; 10 felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child; seven felony counts of distribution of controlled substance to someone under 18 years old; five misdemeanor charges of causing or encouraging acts rendering children delinquent or abused; and five misdemeanor charges of sexual battery.

Totten is represented by defense attorney Brian Jones, who during a previous bond appeal in Greene County Circuit Court on March 20 said “we certainly dispute the charges.”

The Honorable Judge Dale Durrer set Totten’s arraignment for July 30 at 9:30 a.m.

Totten has served as a youth sports umpire in the region and was also the coach of the U18 baseball team at the Greene County Youth Center that went to the state tournament last summer.
