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

EMS paramedic likes exposing himself

FAIRMONT -- EMS paramedic Edward Utter, 40, has faced indecent exposure charges in the past, and not just in West Virginia.
Utter was arrested in 1998 for third- and fourth-degree sexual offense, indecent exposure, and second-degree assault, according to the Prince George's Cuonty Court Clerk's Office.

A jury found Utter guilty of second degree assault, and he was on probation until Sept. 23, 2001.

Utter was arrested last week for indecent exposure.

Fairmont Police accuse Utter of exposing his genitals to a woman in an alley between Benoni Avenue and Walnut Avenue Thursday, according to his criminal complaint.

The woman picked Utter's picture out of a police photo array Friday, the complaint states.

This is the second time he's faced the charge in West Virginia.

Bridgeport Police arrested Utter for the same charge back in March 2006.

Utter was accused of exposing himself to a 15-year-old girl on Johnson Avenue.

Prosecutors entered into a pretrial diversion with Utter, meaning his charges would be dropped if he stayed out of trouble.

The Harrison County Prosecutor's Office said Utter is past the time when his charges could have been re-filed.

Utter works for Harrison County EMS and the Taylor County Emergency Squad.

Both organizations say they are investigating the matter internally.

Utter also works at Anmoore EMS.
