Two Calhoun men will serve time on drug convictions brought before the Calhoun Circuit Court on Monday. Judge Tom Evans III overruled requests for probation and said the defendants need to serve time. The charges stem from arrests made last year near Arnoldsburg, after which the men were charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, meth amphetamine.

David Scott Arthur of Wirt County, formerly of Creston, was sentenced to six months in Central Regional Jail at Flatwoods and fined $1000. The charge was pled down from felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, to possession. Judge Evans said "The public good requires incarceration." He stated the defendant is likely to commit the crime again. He was represented by attorney David Karickhoff.

Jerry Scott Wagoner of Grantsville was sentenced to four months in Central Regional Jail, after a plea bargaining agreement. His original charge was a felony, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. He will serve jail time for possession. He was represented by Public Defender Drew Patton.

Gregory Harrison was sentenced to the WV State Pen for a period of not less than one year nor more than ten. The sentence stemmed from a grand larceny conviction.

Judge David W. Nibert heard several civil cases Tuesday and Wednesday in Calhoun Circuit Court, including Pierson vs. Krack, Cutsail vs. Heiney and Jones vs. Fluharty. He also heard a case, the State vs. Ben Jackson, a suppression hearing, along with juvenile cases.

The decisions or actions by Judge Evans court on Monday relating to the State vs. Jeremy Dilgard, the State vs. Teresa Jett and the State vs. Russell Collins, are not yet available.
