“This is something we don’t see very often,” said Hardy County Circuit Court Judge C. Carter Williams. “I am extremely delighted, pleased and proud.”
Brittney N. Smith, 30, Hunter W. Adkins, 33 and Marshall L. Wratchford, 24, all of Petersburg filed motions to change their pleas of guilty to felony charges and entered guilty pleas to misdemeanor charges. All three successfully completed the South Branch Valley Drug Court Program and graduated last month.
Smith was originally charged with burglary and conspiracy.
Adkins was charged with burglary, conspiracy and malicious assault.
