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

Sex crimes asked to be dismissed

WHEELING -- Attorneys for a Wheeling Island man accused of sex crimes, including sexual assault and incest, are asking for some of those charges to be dismissed.
Douglas Charles Jackson, 40, is also accused of showing pornography to young children, however, his defense argued today that the material the child saw was not obscene, so 20 of the 133 charges should be dismissed.

Judge James Mazzone is giving the state time to review that part of the case before he rules.

Meanwhile, Jackson's trial date is set for Nov. 30. He is in the Northern Regional Jail on a $2 million bond.
