Judge sentences 2 for wire theft, revokes probations for 7
Two brothers were sentenced in connection with theft of railroad property and several others were sent to jail after their probations were revoked by Judge Andrew Frye in Morgan County Circuit Court in recent weeks.
David M. Stonebraker, 45, of Paw Paw was sentenced to one-to-10 years in prison after pleading guilty on August 20 to the theft of copper signal wire from CSX Railroad property at Orleans Cross Roads.
Three weeks earlier, Daniel L. Stonebraker, 39, of Cross Junction, Va. was given a suspended sentence of one-to-five years in prison for conspiring with his brother to remove the copper signal wire. He will be on three years probation.
The two are also responsible for paying $1,033 restitution to CSX.
On August 20, the judge also sentenced John P. Barrett, 33, of Berkeley Springs to a suspended term of one-to-15 years in prison for delivery of oxycodone in January.
As part of the plea arrangement, Barrett must serve 30 days in jail and will then be on five years probation.
