Beegle Pleads Guilty To Intent To Deliver Drugs
Dean Allen Beegle, 44, of 722 Fifth Street, New Martinsville, pleaded guilty in Wetzel County Circuit Court before the Honorable Judge David W. Hummel Nov. 6 to possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) with intent to deliver.
For this offense, Beegle was sentenced to one to five years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Men. However, this sentence was suspended and Beegle will instead serve two years of supervised probation.
Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Haught stated that Beegle’s case was investigated by the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office. The execution of a search warrant, said Haught, revealed Beegle had marijuana, scales, and other drug paraphernalia at his residence.
Notably, when asked if he had had any controlled substances recently, Beegle noted that he had not.
“So when I drug test you today, it won’t show up anything?” Judge Hummel questioned. Beegle then stated that he had had marijuana a couple weeks ago.
In regard to his plea agreement, when asked what made him guilty of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, Beegle noted, “They came to my house and found marijuana.”
According to the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, the case was investigated by Deputy Randy Adams and Deputy Dave Howell of the WCSO. Chief Deputy Mike Koontz, Deputy Eric Daugherty, and Sergeant Friend Estep of the New Martinsville Police Department all assisted with the case.
