Man sentenced in home invasion

Dec. 29, 2012 @ 11:37 PM

HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington man faces up to three decades in prison for his role in a February 2011 home invasion.

Terry Allen Chaney received the 30-year prison sentence from Cabell Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell.

Chaney, 26, of Huntington's 200 block of Gallaher Street and 300 block of 22nd Street West, had pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and wanton endangerment, two counts of each charge.

The allegations were related to a Feb. 7, 2011, home invasion in the 2100 block of 5th Avenue West and a June 27, 2010, shooting in the 100 block of Euclid Place.

Two indictments, both filed in September 2011, initially accused Chaney of conspiracy and malicious wounding, along with two counts each of burglary, first-degree robbery and wanton endangerment.

Farrell and fellow Cabell Circuit Judge Alfred Ferguson also issued punishments in the following criminal cases:

Repeat prostitute

Ferguson ordered Belinda Ann Fuller to a 1- to 3-year prison sentence.

Fuller, 39, had pleaded guilty to third-offense soliciting an act of prostitution.

A September 2012 indictment initially charged Fuller with two counts of third-offense soliciting prostitution.Sentence for robbery

Ferguson ordered Billy Lee Walker to a 5- to 18-year prison sentence.

Walker, 40, had pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery. He agreed to enter that plea without a grand jury indictment.Conspiracy nets prison time

Ferguson ordered Derrick Wayne Walker to a 1- to 5-year prison sentence, which will run separate from a punishment of equal time in Kanawha County.

Walker, 32, with addresses in Charleston and Elkview, W.Va., had pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

A September 2012 indictment initially charged Walker with conspiracy and attempting to operate a clandestine drug laboratory.

Sex abuse case

Farrell ordered Donald Lee Lewis to a 3- to 15-year prison sentence and 40 years of supervised release.

Lewis, 39, had pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

A June 2010 indictment initially charged Lewis with three counts of second-degree sexual assault, along with single counts of domestic battery and destruction of property.

Grand larceny

Ferguson ordered Leslie Danielle Dabney to a 1- to 10-year prison sentence.

Dabney, 32, of the 800 block of Long Ridge Road in Apple Grove, W.Va., had pleaded guilty to grand larceny.

A November 2011 indictment initially charged her with grand larceny, petit larceny and conspiracy.

Pass on treatment gets prison

Farrell ordered David Christopher Little to a 1- to 10-year prison sentence with the recommendation of drug treatment behind bars.

Little, 27, of the 1100 block of Van Buren Ave. in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to grand larceny. He agreed to enter the plea without a grand jury indictment. It followed Little passing on a chance for drug treatment.

Grand larceny case nets prison

Ferguson ordered Brian Scott Warden II to a 1- to 10-year prison sentence.

Warden, 22, of the 4100 block of Whitten Ridge Road in Milton, had pleaded guilty to grand larceny.

A November 2011 indictment initially charged Warden with grand larceny, along with breaking and entering.

Identity theft case

Farrell ordered Kathy Lynn Johnson to four years of probation and to pay $5,698.16 restitution after the judge suspended a 2-year prison sentence.

Johnson, 52, of the 1600 block of Woodward Terrace in Huntington, had pleaded guilty to single counts of identity theft and fraudulent use of an access device.

A June 2012 indictment initially charged Johnson with 15 counts fraudulent use of an access device and three counts of identity theft.
