By Staff | Aug 12, 2009

Jennifer S. Wade, 30, of 703 Park Ave., Apartment 1, New Martinsville, was before Judge David Hummel to revoke her supervised probation. Wade tested positive for marijuana by a random drug screening conducted by her adult probation officer, John Lantz, on May 27.

Wade was on two years of supervised probation for delivery of a controlled substance (hydrocodone). The alleged charge was that on Oct. 16, 2008, a confidential informant working with the New Martinsville Police Department arranged to purchase six hydrocodone pills from Joseph and Jennifer Wade.

“What got you in this situation?” asked Hummel. “It was stupid,” replied Wade. Hummel told Wade, “You violated the rules of probation; you smoked a joint.”

Prosecutor Tim Haught told the courtroom that an agreement was reached if accepted by the court in which Wade would do 20 days in jail.

This jail time would be served only on the weekends, since she had employment.

Hummel accepted the agreement and explained to Wade she is to report to the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville on Fridays at 6 p.m. and be released by Sunday at 7 p.m. He further explained that on the final week she is to report on Friday at 12:05 p.m and be released on Sunday at 11 p.m. He reminded her she will remain on probation after her jail time is served.

Mikeal James Craft, 30, of P.O. Box 58, Wileyville, was also present in the courtroom to revoke his probation. Craft was placed on two years supervised probation on February 27, 2008, after pleading guilty to the lesser offense of joyriding.

Craft admitted to testing positive for marijuana in a a random drug screening and driving with a suspended license and providing false information to an officer of law. Hummel then deferred his sentencing date to Sept. 4 at 9 a.m.
