FAYETTEVILLE, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A Montgomery man was sentenced to prison earlier this month after having pled guilty to the felony offense of breaking and entering.
According to Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney Anthony Ciliberti Jr., on October 4, 2022, Christopher Graham age 45, of Montgomery, West Virginia was sentenced by Judge Paul M. Blake, Jr. to not less than one (1) year nor more than ten (10) years for the felony crime of breaking and entering.
Graham pled guilty to the offense on July 21, 2022.
Having already been on parole in relation to a felony conviction from Nicholas County at the time the Fayette County offense was committed, Graham’s sentence for the Fayette County conviction was ordered by Judge Blake to be served consecutively to the Nicholas County sentence.
Graham must serve a minimum of one year before becoming eligible for parole.
The incident was detailed through the prosecuting attorney’s release as follows:
“On April 8, 2021, a deputy with the Fayette County Sheriff’s department responded to a security alarm at Brookside Ministries in Fayette County. After arriving on scene, the deputy noticed a window to the building had been broken open. The deputy entered the building and while clearing the building found Graham inside carrying a backpack which was filled with personal property items that belonged to the church.”
The case was investigated by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department and prosecuted by Fayette County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Tyler S. Rohrbaugh.
