Hummel Releases Wade

By Staff | Jul 1, 2009

Niccole Wade, 25, of 811 Third Street, New Martinsville, came from the Northern Regional Jail to appear before David W. Hummel Jr.’s June 25 on a petition to revoke her probation.

Wade entered into a plea agreement in December 2008 for a guilty plea to one count felony child neglect that occurred between Feb. 1, 2007, and March 27, 2007. She was issued a suspended sentence and placed on probation for two years.

Assistant Prosecutor Worthy Paul told the courtroom that on May 27 she was tested for marijuana and it came back positive on June 3.

Hummel asked Wade what she did. She replied, ” I used marijuana.”

Hummel explained that her sentence was to serve 22 days, but given credit for the 22 days in the NRJ, she was released.

Adult Probation Officer John Lantz reported that her probation will expire on Dec. 5, 2010.

Judge Hummel listened to a request for probation from Andrew William Richard, 21, of 28 Rose St., Lot 80 N, New Martinsville. In 2007, Richard is alleged to have stolen cigarettes from Mayo’s Exxon valued at less than $1,000. A recommended stay at the Anthony Center for youthful offenders in Greenbrier County was his sentence given by Judge John Madden.

Prosecutor Tim Haught told the courtroom that Richard competed his incarceration at the Anthony Center at Greenbrier County, W.Va. He continued, explaining he is now present for two years of supervised probation.

Hummel asked Richard what he did at the Anthony Center. Richard told Hummel that he got a good education and that he did get his GED.

Hummel asked Richard, “What are you going to do with your life now?” Richard responded by saying he was thinking about going into the coal mine to gain employment.

Probation Officer Lantz reported he was a good candidate for probation. Hummel reminded Richard that there are rules and regulations to probation and he then asked Haught what would happen if the probation was violated.

Haught reported to Richard that if his probation was violated, he could get a sentence of one to 10 years in the West Virginia Men’s Penitentiary.

Supervised probation of two years was granted by Judge Hummel.
