COURT HOUSE – A Cape May County grand jury handed up 16 indictments Jan. 10.  
The abbreviation CDS below stands for controlled dangerous substance. 
A “certain person” charge can be brought against individuals whose previous convictions bar them from having weapons.  
Malik S. Brogden was indicted on two counts of first-degree attempted murder, along with two counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, a 9mm handgun. Brogden is lodged at the Cape May County Correctional Facility.
John V. Doughten faces four fourth-degree counts of unlawful possession of a weapon. The weapons were a machete, a samurai sword, a knife, and a blackjack. Possession of the blackjack also led to a fourth-degree count for prohibited weapon. Doughten also faces a count for impersonating a law enforcement officer, fourth degree. A 1980 conviction for aggravated assault in Pennsylvania led to another fourth-degree count for certain person based on the possession of the machete.
Skye C. Giesecke was named in a single count for fourth-degree contempt of a pretrial release order. Giesecke is now lodged at the Cape May County Correctional Facility.
Robert T. Wilson, Robert F. Stanley and Skyler C. Smith were named in a five-count indictment. Stanley and Smith face two third-degree counts for shoplifting and conspiracy.
