Woman convicted of violating neighbor's civil rights accused of violating probation

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Falling Waters woman convicted of violating her black neighbors' civil rights has been incarcerated at Eastern Regional Jail for allegedly violated the terms of her probation earlier this month, according to Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely.

Kendra N. Sulick was arrested for driving under the influence, Games-Neely said Tuesday. She was booked at Eastern Regional Jail on Feb. 14, according to jail records.

In November, Sulick was placed on five years of probation in lieu of a six-year prison sentence, which was suspended.

A Berkeley County Circuit Court jury convicted Sulick of three civil-rights violations in June 2010.

She was charged with making racial slurs, threatening the victims' children and other offenses between December 2007 and April 2009.

Man gets multiple prison terms for breaking and entering, petit larceny

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A 38-year-old man convicted of breaking and entering an automobile, petit larceny and nine other related charges in a October jury trial was sentenced Tuesday to serve multiple prison terms.

Harry W. Creamer was ordered by 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Christopher C. Wilkes to serve a 12-month sentence for the breaking and entering conviction at the same time as a 1-year sentence for a petit larceny conviction, according to a commitment order signed by Wilkes.

After serving those sentences, Creamer is expected to serve seven, 10-year sentences at the same time for his conviction on seven counts of fraudulent use of an access device (ATM card), according to the judge's order.

Creamer then is expected to serve two, one-to-10-year sentences for convictions on counts of forgery and uttering, according to court records.

Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely said Tuesday that additional charges filed against Creamer stemming from three separate incidents are pending.

The sentences ordered Tuesday stem from charges that Creamer stole a purse from a woman's vehicle in the 600 block of West Virginia Avenue in June 2009, according to court records.
