Karl revokes Acree’s bond

By Staff | Jan 6, 2010

Judge Mark A. Karl recently revoked bond for one defendant facing felony charges in Tyler County and unrelated charges in Pennsylvania, while his co-defendants remain free on bond.

On Dec. 30, Colby Justin Acree, 19, of 317 Main St., Middlebourne, was ordered to self report to the North Central Regional Jail in Greenwood on Dec. 31 at 4:30 p.m.

Acree was charged with two counts of conspiracy in August 2008 but was released on bond. However, while on bond for crimes committed in Tyler County, Acree was charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin) with the intent to deliver in the state of Pennsylvania, along with co-defendants, Christopher A. Olszewski and Jessica Cooper-Boor.

Acree will remain in the custody of the State until his next court date slated for Feb. 4 at 10 a.m.

Olszewski, 22, of 405 Hardman St., Middlebourne, also appeared in court on Wednesday to face one felony count of possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) with intent to deliver and one felony count of possession of a controlled substance (heroin) with intent to deliver to have allegedly occurred in August 2008.

While on bond for those charges, he was charged in Allegheny County, Pa., on an additional, unrelated possession charge.

On the state’s behalf, Haught informed the court he did not have a problem with Olszewski going to Pennsylvania for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. for the charges brought against him, but he wanted to remind Olszewski those proceedings will be the only time he will be permitted to be out of West Virginia under his bond agreements.

Olszewski waived his right to a speedy trial until the next court term scheduled to begin on Feb. 10.

His bond was continued and he will return to court on Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.
