MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The local director of the state Division of Motor Vehicles will serve six months in jail for driving with a revoked license, despite his plea for alternative sentencing, a judge decided Wednesday.
Berkeley County Circuit Judge David Sanders ruled that a previous sentence imposed on Craig Loy, who heads the Martinsburg DMV office, will stand.
Loy, 40, of 402 Porter Ave., Martinsburg, will serve six months in jail for driving on Jan. 22, 1999, several months after his license had been revoked.
He had asked to be confined to his home instead of going to jail, but Sanders said no. Instead, Loy will be on work release, under which he can leave jail only to go to work each day, according to Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely.
