Tyler County Circuit Court Addresses Matters
Tony Winter, 24, of 105 N. 3 Avenue, Paden City, appeared before the Honorable Judge Jeffrey Cramer in Tyler County Circuit Court on April 16 for a voluntarism of statement hearing. Winter has been charged with the felony offense of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver methamphetamine. This offense allegedly occurred on November 15, 2018. Winter had pleaded not guilty to this crime, and was later released on bail. Winter’s attorney had told Judge Cramer that Winter desired a hearing on a statement he had given to law enforcement.
After the hearing, Judge Cramer then decided – from the evidence given – that Winter had given his statement voluntarily. The matter was then set for trial on May 28. Winter’s bond was continued, and he was ordered to return to court.
Chadrick Kile, 39, of 102 Becky Lane, Middlebourne, also appeared in court that day for a voluntarism of statement hearing. Kile has been charged with the felony offense of grand larceny. Kile pleaded not guilty to this offense and was later released on bail. His attorney informed Judge Cramer that plea negotiations were still ongoing, but nothing had been solidified. Kile’s attorney also said – in regards to the question of his voluntary statement – that the officer who apprehended Kile explained his rights before having him officially sign a form. He made a move to stipulate the voluntarism of statements, and Judge Cramer accepted the stipulations.
The matter was then set for trial on May 15. Kile’s bond was continued, and Judge Cramer ordered him to return to court.
Brian Wade, 55, also appeared in court that day for a hearing. Wade has been charged with the felony offenses of breaking and entering a building other than a dwelling, and grand larceny. These offenses allegedly occurred on October 26, 2018. Wade pleaded not guilty and is currently being detained in the North Central Regional Jail.
Prosecuting Attorney Luke Furbee told the court that the state wants to have an evidentiary hearing held for the matter.
Wade’s attorney explained to Judge Cramer that his client has another case in Wetzel County. As such, the matter was reset for April 29 for either a plea or evidentiary hearing. Wade was then remanded.
Lindsay Adams, 25, of P.O. Box 42, Reader, also appeared in court that day for an extradition. Adams has been charged with one felony offense as well as two misdemeanor offenses including drug possession and failure to appear in court in Belmont County, Ohio. She is currently being held in the North Central Regional Jail. Adams’ attorney informed Judge Cramer that Adams wanted to waive extradition. Judge Cramer accepted the waive, and Adams was then remanded.
Bruce Smith, 38, of 1306 Ross Road, Alma, appeared in court that for an extradition as well. Smith has been charged with failure to pay child support in Kentucky. Smith is currently being held in the North Central Regional Jail. Smith waived the extradition. Furbee then informed Judge Cramer that there was a case involving Smith that he wanted to have finished before the extradition. As Smith has recently made bond, Judge Cramer gave Kentucky 30 days to retrieve Smith, which also gave Furbee some time to work on the case. Smith was then remanded.
