21 Jan. – Monongalia County’s first grand jury of 2023 filed 106 indictments, significantly fewer than the 150 indicted in September 2022.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but a formal misdemeanor charge issued by a grand jury declaring that there is sufficient evidence that the defendant committed the crime to warrant a lawsuit.

The defendants will continue to fight charges ranging from murder and malicious assault to fraud, with the most common charges related to drugs, domestic violence, sexual assault or abuse, DUIs and theft.

Last week’s grand jury was the last for Monongalia County Prosecutor Perri Jo DeChristopher, who will soon be sworn into her new position as circuit court judge.

“The fact that the January 2023 Grand Jury was the last one I will participate in as a prosecutor after 25 years in Monongalia County makes me a little sad,” said DeChristopher, “but looking back at the last 75 Grand Jury proceedings in which I participated, I am very proud of what I have achieved at the prosecutor’s office,” she said.

The following individuals have been charged and will now continue their cases in Monongalia County Circuit Court as prosecutors work on sentencing.
