Huntington man faces twelve years in prison

Mar. 20, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington man accused of attempting a purse snatching faces a dozen years in prison.

The defendant, Shane Douglas Cihon, recently received a 12-year prison sentence, according to court officials. It was among a number of sentences recently ordered by Cabell Circuit Judges Paul T. Farrell and Alfred Ferguson.

Farrell ordered Cihon's punishment, mandating that it be served separate from a prison sentence in Wayne County.

Cihon, 26, of the 2000 block of Madison Avenue in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to attempt to commit first-degree robbery in a purse snatching in March 2011. It was just one of several initial charges detailed in three indictments.

Other recent sentencings:

CAPERS: Farrell ordered Christopher E. Capers to a 2- to 10-year prison sentence.

Capers, 25, had pleaded guilty to second-offense carrying a concealed deadly weapon and conspiracy to possess and deliver heroin. He agreed to enter the plea without a grand jury indictment.

JEFFRIES: Ferguson ordered Seth Jacob Jeffries to a 1- to 15-year prison sentence following his home confinement being revoked in February.

Jeffries, 23, of 6400 block of Davis Creek Road in Barboursville, had pleaded guilty to burglary and battery on a police officer. It was one of multiple charges alleged in the initial indictment.

ROWE: Ferguson ordered James Michael Rowe to a 1- to 3-year prison sentence following a revocation of his home confinement.

Rowe, 37, with multiple addresses in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to third-offense driving on a suspended/revoked license because of a prior drunken driving conviction. It was the sole count of his indictment.

HICKS: Farrell ordered Scotty Ray Hicks to 18 months probation with required day counseling following the judge suspending a 92-day jail sentence.

Hicks, 20, of the 3900 block of 4th Avenue in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance and driving under the influence of a controlled substance. Those charges were reduced from those alleged in the initial indictment.

HOWARD: Ferguson ordered Patricia Ann Howard to a 1- to 3-year prison sentence.

Howard, 53, had pleaded guilty to attempt to commit a felony. She agreed to enter the plea without a grand jury indictment.
