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

FBI officer pleads guilty

FAIRMONT -- An FBI police officer has pleaded guilty to conspiracy.
Gary Sutton Jr., of New Milton, will spend six months on probation for his part in invading the privacy of young girls taking part in the Cinderella Project, a discount prom gown event sponsored by Marion County Hospice.

Sutton and another officer, Charles Hommema, of Buckhannon, were working in the FBI Satellite Control Center at the Middletown Mall on April 4, 2009, according to court documents.

Between 9:34 a. m. and 11 a. m. they pointed the FBI security cameras used in the mall at one of five makeshift dressing rooms set up for the event, the documents say, and caught one of the young women topless.

Marion County deputies arrested the pair in April.

Special Magistrate Joey Kohari dropped Sutton's other charge, invasion of privacy, as part of the agreement.

Homemma's trial is scheduled for December.

Calls to the FBI to see if the pair still are agents have not yet been returned
