Hinkle Accused Of Violation
Tori Dale Hinkle, 23, of Paden City, appeared in court Nov. 16, where it was determined that Chief Probation Officer John D. Lantz had filed a petition to revoke Hinkle’s probation, a little short of one year since Hinkle had been released on supervised probation.
On July 15, 2011, Hinkle was sentenced to one to five years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Women for conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance (heroin). Judge Mark Karl had said he would hear a rule 35 motion after Hinkle had served a minimum of four months. On Nov. 18, 2011, Hinkle was released onto two years supervised probation.
On March 3, 2011, Hinkle had been arrested for conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance after 110 stamps of heroin (valued at roughly $4,400) were found on Hinkle’s person.
On June 8, 2011, Hinkle pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deliver. At a July 15, 2011, sentencing hearing, Hinkle was devastated to hear of her one to five year prison sentence and had made a final plea to Judge Karl, stating she had just regained partial custody of her children. “I just want to be a mom to my kids again,” Hinkle had said.
Hinkle will appear in court again on the motion to revoke probation, Dec. 6, noon. Dave C. White has been appointed as Hinkle’s attorney.
