February 22, 2007|by MATTHEW UMSTEAD

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A grand jury convened on the second day of the February term of Circuit Court in Berkeley County determined that sufficient evidence was provided by the state to indict 33 people Wednesday, according to signed copies of the panel's true bills released by Prosecuting Attorney Pamela J. Games-Neely's office Wednesday.

Ten individuals were indicted Tuesday. An indictment merely reflects the grand jury's conclusion that the accused probably committed the crime or crimes in question. It is not evidence of guilt. Jurors are slated to reconvene today, Games-Neely said.

Indicted Wednesday were;

· John E. Whittman, 33, of 427 Winchester Ave., Martinsburg, on a count of embezzlement.

· Ronald L. Stotler, 37, address unknown, on counts of first degree robbery, assault during the commission of a felony and conspiracy.

· Norma J. Robinson, 34, of 305 W. Martin St., Apt. 3, Martinsburg, on counts of first-degree robbery, assault during the commission of a felony and conspiracy.
