GRAFTON Taylor County Circuit Court was in session on Wednesday to hear the following criminal cases.
Paul R. Glass, age 75, appeared before the court seeking a reduction in his sentence. Glass was sentenced to 11-to-35 years in the West Virginia State Penitentiary, after pleading guilty to three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree, in July of 2008.
I am willing to look at this, but I want to know that the children are protected, physically and psychologically, Judge Moats stated. Once all of the reports and a solid plan is completed, I will take this under advisement.
Stephanie Parrish came before the court to enter into a plea agreement with the state. Parrish agreed to plead guilty to two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony, entered as information, and the state agreed to recommend that the other charges against her be dismissed, and that her sentences run concurrently, and that she be placed into the Taylor County Community Corrections Program.
Parrish waived her right to have the information presented to the Taylor County Grand Jury, and pled guilty to both counts of conspiracy to commit a felony, delivery of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, with Bruce Wayne Hastings.
Judge Moats ordered a pre-sentence investigation, and ordered that Parrish remain in jail pending the outcome.
