Maciak heads to jail,
Lytle receives probation

James Maciak appeared in Braxton County Circuit Court before Judge Richard A. Facemire on the 12th of January for sentencing. Clinton Bishchoff acted as Maciak’s counsel in the matter. Kelly Hamon McLaughlin represented the State.
Maciak, in person and by counsel, requested some form of alternative sentencing, but the Court saw the defendant as a poor candidate. Therefore, the Court denied this motion and ordered that Maciak be imprisoned in the state penitentiary for two counts of the felonious offense of Grand Larceny and for one count of Nighttime Burglary. These charges shall run consecutively, leaving the defendant with no less than six and no more than eighty years in the state penitentiary.

BCHS Top Ten Senior Countdown

Her favorite high school memory relates to the band’s performance at the last football game. The teacher who she says influenced her the most is then-band director Allen Heath. From this, one can safely conclude that Sarah Mallory, who ranks tenth in the 2015 Braxton County High graduating class, considers band a very important part of her high school career.
Mallory, the daughter of Jeff and Sharon Mallory of Burnsville, described her favorite memory. “[It] has to be at my very last home football game. The band circled up around the seniors to sing the Alma Mater (tradition). That time we sang it with tears in our eyes because we were full of pride and happiness as a family,” she said.
