Judge Cramer Hears Court Matters
Alexander King, 32, of New Martinsville, was sentenced in Wetzel County Circuit Court April 4 by the Honorable Judge Jeffrey D. Cramer. King pleaded guilty last month to the felony offense of “uttering a false bill or note.”
He admitted to using a counterfeit $100 bill at Speedway in New Martinsville. Through a plea agreement, he was sentenced to not less than two nor more than 10 years, with credit for time served. However, the sentence was suspended, and King was placed on two years of supervised probation and ordered to make restitution to Speedway in the amount of $100, and pay the cost of his prosecution.
Logan John Lynn Miller, 30, of Waynesburg, Pa., was previously charged in Wetzel County with “entry of a building other than a dwelling” and “grand larceny.” He recently appeared in court for a scheduled pre-trial hearing.
Attorney David White told Judge Cramer he needed more time to go over motions, and his client was willing to waive this term of court. A trial date of April 19 had previously been set in the case.
Cramer asked Miller if he agreed to have the case carried over to the next term of court and waive his right to a speedy trial. Miller answered yes.
Cramer then vacated the April trial date and ordered Miller to return to court on May 24, the next term of court docket day. His bond was allowed to continue.
Gregory Dalton Morgan, 23, of 404 Virginia Street, New Martinsville, was in court with his recently retained attorney, David White. Morgan had previously been represented by a court-appointed attorney and has since been declared ineligible due to his employment.
White told the court he was just retained on March 20 and hasn’t had enough time to go over discovery or meet with his client. A previous plea agreement had been reached between the prosecution and the defendant, but White had not had a chance to go over it
Morgan agreed to waive his right to a speedy trial for this term of court. Judge Cramer ordered Morgan to return at docket day, May 24, at 9 a.m. His bond was allowed to continue.
He is charged with the felony offense of grand larceny, plus two misdemeanor offenses of breaking and entering an automobile, and destruction of property. All three offenses are alleged to have occurred on April 2, 2017, in Wetzel County.
