Judge Mark A. Karl sentenced a Paden City resident to one year home confinement for delivery of a controlled substance.
Kenny Harrison went before Judge Karl and entered into a guilty plea on Thursday afternoon. Harrison, 57, of 807 B. South Third Ave., Paden City was charged with two counts of a controlled substance (Marijuana) to have occurred on Nov. 7 and 8 of 2008. On June 22, he pled not guilty and on Jan. 14, he withdrew that plea and entered into a guilty plea after agreements were met. He plead guilty to count one, possession of a controlled substance, which carries a sentence from one to five years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Men. Count two was dismissed.
Karl asked Harrison what he had done.
“I went to New Martinsville and picked up some Marijuana, came home and got busted for it,” said Harrison.
Karl placed him on home confinement for one year and ordered him to pay all court appointed fees. Judge Karl also ordered Harrison to pay daily fee and hook up fees for home confinement.
