Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Jackson fugitive found in Tennessee

RIPLEY - A fugitive from justice in Jackson County was apprehended in Tennessee and returned.

Telly Sylvester Larry, 29, in custody at the South Central Regional Jail, South Charleston, had been wanted since he was indicted by a Jackson County grand jury in November 2008 and failed to appear for his arraignment.

Larry was indicted on three counts of first-degree sexual assault, one count of first-degree sexual abuse and four courts of sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust.

According to court records, the crimes allegedly took place between June and December 2007 and the victim was a 7-year-old girl. Jackson County sheriff's Sgt. Jim Bare was the investigating officer.

Larry was placed on the National Crime Information Center database and was being sought with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Larry was recently arrested in Nashville, Tenn., on an unrelated charge and a routine check of the NCIC alerted officers to the charges in Jackson County. He was extradited from Tennessee and returned to West Virginia Oct. 15 by a transport company and was lodged in the South Central Regional Jail to await arraignment.

A charge of failure to appear will be added to the charges against Larry, said Jackson County Chief Deputy B.W. Dewees.

An arraignment is set for 9 a.m. Oct. 28 in circuit court before Judge Thomas C. Evans.
