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

Man gets 8 years in crack case

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Charleston man was sentenced on Tuesday to eight years in prison for distributing crack cocaine and violating his supervised release from an earlier drug conviction.

Brian Lamar Vineyard, 37, pleaded guilty to the charges in April, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for Southern West Virginia.

In January, Vineyard sold $140 worth of crack to an informant working with the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team, according to the release. The sale took place the Charleston Town Center Mall.

U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver Jr. sentenced Vineyard to seven years on the drug charge and an additional year for violating his release.
