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

FAIRMONT — A Marion County woman was sentenced in federal district court last week after pleading guilty to drug charges.

According to a press release from acting United States Attorney Betsy C. Jividen, Longwell pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced last Friday in United States District Court in Clarksburg. She is currently in federal custody.
