Tori Dale Hinkle

On June 21, 10 a.m. Tori Dale Hinkle will return to Wetzel County Circuit Court where Judge Mark A. Karl will determine her fate.

It was noted May 15 that Hinkle has been convicted of assault in Monroe County. For this crime, Hinkle was sentenced to three days in jail. This jail sentence was suspended, however, and the matter is currently being appealed by the defense.

As for her Wetzel County offenses: “The state is asking that Hinkle’s probation be revoked,” Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Haught noted. She’s been convicted of assault regarding a juvenile or young adult. Those on probation shouldn’t be causing problems to other people. She should be remanded to serve her original sentence of one to five years.”

Defense Attorney David C. White noted that Hinkle’s conviction is not final.

Judge Karl questioned how long the appeal process would take in Monroe County; Haught responded that in his experience, it could take six months before a decision is made.

Karl passed the matter until June 21, 10 a.m., and directed Hinkle to undergo another drug screening. “You are running a fine line here,” Karl noted. “You are on probation. You’ve been convicted of another offense. I realize you have two children and are working full-time. I will revisit this June 21.”

In another matter, a trial date for Charles Robert Wells, 46, of P.O. Box 53, Proctor, was set for Aug. 7, 9 a.m.

From the January 2012 grand jury, Wells received a one-count felony indictment for third-offense domestic battery. He is alleged to have struck his girlfriend in the face with his hand and kicked her in the ribs with his foot on Oct. 24, 2011.

Additionally, from the September grand jury, Wells was charged with third or subsequent offense domestic battery, as well as battery. It alleges that on July 16 Wells intentionally struck a person in the face by throwing a can of soda or beer at her in New Martinsville. This case will be tried as case #3 on Aug. 7.

The case involving Troy M. Richman, 51, of HC 61, Box 321, New Martinsville, has been set for trial for Sept. 4, 9 a.m. Richman received a one-count indictment alleging that on or about June 4 he committed the felony offense of malicious assault by cutting Joseph Eugene Lasure with a knife.

Plea negotiations are ongoing in the case involving Justin Matthew Martie, 25, of 454 N. Main Street, New Martinsville. Attorney Gardner reported that counsel is getting close to a resolution in the case; therefore, a return date of June 21, 10 a.m., has been set.

From the September 2012 grand jury, Martie received a two-count indictment. Count one states that on or about June 21, 2008, Martie feloniously stole a 2002 Suzuki Ozark ATV which belonged to David L. Smith. Count two of the indictment states that between July 5 and 14, 2008, Martie committed the felony offense of third degree arson in that he set fire to and burned a 2002 Suzuki Ozark ATV, which had a value of more than $500.

Nicky Nicole Mavety, 23, of PO Box 97, New Martinsville, may be facing new allegations in magistrate court. Haught stated that as for her circuit court case, Mavety did not have to post any new bond; however, he was going to be making a recommendation of bond in a new felony case against Mavety in magistrate. Haught said depending on what magistrate does, he may petition to revoke Mavety’s bond. Mavety is to return to court June 21, 10 a.m.

Mavety received a two-count indictment from the grand jury charging her with entry of a building other than a dwelling and petit larceny. Count one alleges that on or about July 14, she entered Wal-Mart Store #2684 in New Martinsville with the intent to commit a larceny. Count two alleges that she stole goods with a cumulative value of less than $1,000 from Wal-Mart.

A separate indictment charges Mavety with conspiracy to deliver oxycodone, along with delivery of oxycodone.

Counsel is still awaiting records on Joshua Ray Watson, 21, of RR1, Box 111, Metz, from Chestnut Ridge in Morgantown. A return date has been set for June 21, 10 a.m.

In May, Watson was indicted on charges of nighttime burglary and grand larceny.

Natasha Lynn Tedrow, 22, of 447B Martin Ave., New Martinsville, will return to court to enter a plea on May 22, 1:30 p.m. Tedrow’s indictment states that on or about July 11, she conspired with Joshua E. Burch, Jason Scott Dalrymple, and an unknown white male to deliver Subutex.

Also, the case involving Ezra Cody Aberegg has been set for trial for Aug. 29, 9 a.m. Aberegg is facing a two-count indictment for entry of a building other than a dwelling and grand larceny. On Jan. 13 he allegedly broke into an outbuilding located on property on North Fork Road, Pine Grove, and took goods valued at more than $1,000.

Anthony Givens, 24, no address given, will return to court June 21, 10 a.m, while counsel is currently awaiting a disposition of a case in Monroe County, Ohio.

On Oct. 16, Gibbons entered a plea of innocence to his charge of first degree robbery. The indictment alleges that on or about Aug. 31 Gibbons allegedly feloniously attempted to commit robbery of a man by chasing, catching, and threatening the alleged victim with death while presenting a firearm in his face, for the purpose of robbing him.

Attorney Kevin Neiswonger noted that receipt results came back from the lab relating to the cases of his clients, Charles Michael, 51, and Mary Evelyn, 50, Young, both of Route 1, Box 31A, New Martinsville.

These receipts were submitted by the defense as proof that they had paid for the property related in the case. However, the lab results from the crime lab show that the receipts are forgeries. Neiswonger stated that “certain individuals” were excluded as to being the individuals who forged the receipts, “including clients.” Therefore, Neiswonger stated that another expert be obtained to do an analysis. Haught stated he had no problem with hiring an expert. The Youngs will return to court June 21, 10 a.m.

Counts one and two in the Youngs’ respective indictments allege they misappropriated the assets of Burton Young, who is over the age of 65, by permitting the recording of a Quitclaim Deed, transferring the real property of Burton Young to their names, without the knowledge or consent of Burton Young. Count two charges them with feloniously forging the attestation of a notary public to the same Quitclaim Deed.

Additionally, Mary Evelyn Young’s third count in her indictment states that on or about Dec. 13, 2010, in Wetzel County, she committed the offense of uttering wherein she feloniously employed as true the above named Quitclaim Deed, when she knew the attestation of the notary public thereon was forged.
