Appeal results in 5-day jail sentence

A 21-year-old Brookneal man, Ryan Keith Angel, accepted a lower court decision last week in Halifax County Circuit Court and pleaded guilty to a first offense of DWI, in a misdemeanor appeal case.

The court sentenced the defendant to an effective five days in jail, with the remainder of a 12-month jail term suspended, conditioned on Angel’s good behavior for 12 months.

The court ordered weekend jail service for the defendant and ordered ignition interlock for six months, in addition to ordering him to complete VASAP and perform 50 hours of community service.


Other court cases

Ebony Jovan Green, 26, of South Boston had a charge against her for driving with a suspended operator’s license dismissed last week, in a misdemeanor appeal case.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge prior to the hearing.

 Robert Lee Harris, 38, of Halifax pleaded not guilty last week to a charge for a probation violation.

The court found evidence sufficient to convict Harris of the charge, but it withheld its finding of guilt and took the case under advisement for six months.

 Tanya Priscilla Nunez, 32, of Nathalie had two charges against her dismissed last week, including felony possession of a Schedule I/II controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance. 

The defendant pleaded guilty to the charges in February 2012, with the court granting her first offender status and taking the case under advisement, additionally ordering Nunez to fulfill a number of court-ordered provisions.
