White Pleads Guilty

Robert Thomas White Jr., 41, of HC 61 Box 97, Littleton, pleaded guilty Friday to third offense driving on a license revoked for driving under the influence.

For this offense White was sentenced to one to three years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Men. However, the execution of this sentence was suspended and White was instead placed on 18 months of probation and was fined $3,000.

Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Haught stated there had been an accident in the particular case; however, White did not cause it. "It wasn't an issue where he was reckless. He was just driving while his license was suspended or revoked."

Haught stated that there were weaknesses in the state's case, relative to count two-misdemeanor second-offense DUI, which was why the state had opted for a plea agreement.

In another matter, Patrick E. Loy, 32, no address given, pleaded guilty to one count of grand larceny. For this offense, Loy was sentenced to one to 10 years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Men. However, the sentence was suspended and Loy was instead placed on two years of probation.

By the September 2013 grand jury, Loy was charged with grand larceny and transferring stolen goods. These two charges allege that on or about April 17, Loy stole jewelry valued at more than $1,000 and transferred it to another.

Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Haught did state in court Friday that Loy had confessed to the crime and the jewelry was recovered.
