Wood County Circuit Court
PARKERSBURG — The following cases appeared in Wood County Circuit Court on Aug. 9 and 10:
* Trampus Ray Burdette, 29, of Parkersburg, pleaded guilty to second-offense driving while in an impaired state, a lesser included offense of the third-offense charge on which he was indicted, and driving on a license revoked for driving under the influence. Following a motion for alternative sentencing, Burdette was referred to Adult Probation for a pre-sentencing report. Sentencing was set for 2 p.m. Oct. 9.
* Wood County Circuit Judge Jason Wharton revoked home confinement for Courtney Simon, 32, of Vienna, who had been out on a $10,000 bond on a charge of entering without breaking. An agreement was reached with prosecutors that Simon will remain in custody at the North Central Regional Jail in Doddridge County until Aug. 31 and then be eligible to repost her bond and be released on home confinement.
* Mark Leslie Lively, 51, in custody at the North Central Regional Jail, had the two counts of third-offense driving on a license revoked for DUI against him severed and requested going to trial first on count two. The state objected and asked to proceed with count one. Judge J.D. Beane allowed count one to be tried first, with the trial scheduled to begin Tuesday.
* Thomas Green, 56, of Parkersburg, pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of a controlled substance, marijuana, with intent to deliver and conspiracy to commit possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. His trial was set for Tuesday before Beane.
* The attorney for Green’s co-defendant, Willoughby Douglas, 44, of Brooklyn, N.Y., made a motion to dismiss the indictment against his client, saying the defense did not receive discovery from the state until July 26 and it was incomplete. Beane said he would rule on the motion after reviewing letters to the state about the discovery.
