Poteete, Wright, Williams, Moats
sentenced to prison

The Honorable Richard A. Facemire recently completed several court orders in the Braxton County Circuit Court. The State of West Virginia was represented by Braxton County Prosecuting Attorney Jasmine R.H. Morton in these hearings.
On September 18, Keith Allen Poteete along with his attorney, Bryan Hinkle appeared before the court for sentencing on the felony charge of driving while license suspended for DUI. Tyler Morlan from the Braxton County Probation office was also present for the hearing. The defense moved for some type of alternative sentencing as Poteete is a non-violent offender and has several health issues. The state remained silent per the plea agreement. Judge Facemire denied the motion stating to sentence the defendant to anything other than incarceration would depreciate the seriousness of the offense.

Pritt told the Commission that the project was nearing his final planning stages and the Public Service Commission required them to collect all promised contributions before the project could go to bid. Pritt said that if the Commission was unable to honor their commitment, it would “substantially delay” the project. Upon hearing the explanation, George Skidmore made a motion that the Commission attempt to pay the $31,000 balance by the October 18 deadline.
