Four sentencedin circuit court
Four people were sentenced in Morgan County Circuit Court in the week before Christmas.
Circuit Judge David Sanders sentenced Homer I. Gray, 41, of Martinsburg to one-to-three years in prison after Gray pled to the attempted breaking and entering of a Morgan County home earlier this year.
Stanley Rhodes was given a suspended sentence of one-to-five years in prison after pleading to first degree sexual abuse. Judge Sanders then ordered that Rhodes be sent to Virginia to face other charges. When he is released there, Rhodes will be put on a five-year probation period in West Virginia.
Circuit Judge Gray Silver handed down a suspended sentence of six months in jail for Michael L. Day, 23, of Sam Householder Road, Berkeley Springs. Day was placed on a year's probation for domestic battery, a misdemeanor. He must pay court costs and attend counseling sessions.
As part of the sentence, Day must also make full restitution to resolve an unrelated felony case for which he was indicted by the Grand Jury earlier this year. In that case, he must repay $13,590 for tools and supplies that were allegedly taken from U. S. Silica, according to the Morgan County Circuit Clerk's Office.
Judge Silver also gave a suspended six-month jail sentence to Laura R. Warner, 46, of Buckskin Lane and placed her on probation for one year. Warner pled to simple possession of marijuana. She had originally been indicted for two counts of delivering illegal prescription drugs.
