Christopher Shane Dellinger, a former Braxton County Sheriff's Deputy and a volunteer policemen for the Town of Grantsville, has been indicted on six counts of falsifying accounts in Braxton County.

Dellinger, who now lives in Summersville, is alleged to have falsified accounts of his activities by making false entries of hours worked on activity reports kept by the West Virginia Commission on Drunk Driving.

The former deputy served as the Braxton County Grant Coordinator for the state program that pays officers for DUI prevention.

The entries allegedly resulted in the officer obtaining pay for hours that he didn't actually work between August 10 and November 20, 2005.

Sgt. C. F. Trader of the West Virginia State Police was the investigating officer. Mark Hudnell of Summerville will prosecute the case.

No charges have been brought against Dellinger in Calhoun County after he allegedly gave an uncertified concealed weapons class. Dellinger was reportedly not certified to teach the class, and reportedly did not return the money he collected for teaching the class.

State Police have reportedly been investigating the matter in Calhoun.


In other cases filed against Calhoun law enforcement, Chief Deputy Ron Bandy has been scheduled for trial on November 13th at 9 a.m. before Judge Thomas Evans III.

Bandy is facing multiple charges related to property taken from an elderly Calhoun couple who had been placed in a nursing home.

The trial is upcoming against former Grantsville Police Chief Ron Gordon, who has been on home confinement since 2006.

Gordon is facing charges that he sexually assaulted up to six females, according to the State Police.

State Police say Gordon allegedly used his position to obtain sex from the women. He was also Home Confinement Officer for the county.

He has been indicted on four counts of first-degree sexual abuse, four counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of nighttime burglary.

No charges have been filed against State Police Sgt. C. J. Ellyson, who was the Grantsville detachment head. The agency says Ellyson is no longer an officer with the agency.

State Police have declined to comment what kind of wrongdoing led to his dismissal, but Ellyson did acknowledge the loss of meth evidence in a high-profile case against John M. Richards.

The agency has yet to offer any explanation regarding other evidence problems, including the loss of marijuana, linked to other Calhoun cases.
