Local man in jail on domestic battery, sexual assault charges

A judge revoked probation for Jessey A. Messner, 30, of Berkeley Springs
on Wednesday, July 26, after Messner was arrested on Wednesday, July 19 and charged with second- degree sexual assault.

Messner had been serving two years of unsupervised probation after being convicted of domestic battery committed in December 2021.

Last week The Morgan Messenger incorrectly reported Messner was released from jail on a $100,000 bond. In fact, Messner remains in jail at Eastern Regional Jail on charges of second-degree sexual assault and domestic battery.

We regret any confusion this may have caused.
