Woman Charged in 35-Count Indictment Accepts Plea Offer


Eyvonne Thompson, 33, of Jane Lew, pled guilty to five drug-related counts of a 35 count indictment last week as part of a plea agreement.
All but one of the 35 counts were drug-related, with the other being a felony child neglect, which was among the charges dropped in the plea deal.
As per the deal, she pleaded guilty to the one count of the possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and four counts of delivery of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.
Her trial began Thursday, June 15. The four identical counts carry a one to five year prison sentence each, and the other count carries a four to 20 year sentence.
Thompson requested a pre-sentence investigation, and will also receive credit for time served. She faces possible fines of a total of $60,000, and could pay up to $500 in court costs, jury fees and court-appointed attorney’s fees.
Thompson also must forfeit guns, money or anything taken during the investigation. Her sentencing is slated for 9 a.m., July 17.
In Magistrate Court, Rachel Clark, 38, of Weston, was arrested June 18 for domestic battery—third offense, a felony, and obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor.
Weston City Police was dispatched to CVS in Weston, making contact with the victim who allegedly stated he did not want Clark to get into trouble.
The responding officer went to Clark’s residence where she allegedly was screaming and yelling at the officer. The officer secured Clark in the patrol car, and took her in for processing.
In an unrelated case, Michael Lough, 32, of Buckhannon, was arrested by Lewis County deputies for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
Deputies, with assistance from Weston City Police, obtained permission to search Lough’s vehicle, where they allegedly found a small baggie with a white, clear crystal substance in it, along with multiple empty, clear baggies and a digital scale.
Zachary Mealey, 24, of Weston, was arrested for domestic assault—third offense on June 15. Mealey allegedly held down his female victim during an altercation. The victim told the responding officer that she and Mealey had been in a verbal altercation, and she feared he was going to physically harm her.
The victim said she tried to leave the residence when Mealey sat on the bumper of her car to prevent her from leaving. Mealy has two prior convictions of domestic battery and domestic assault from 2011 and 2012.
