WOODSTOCK – A grand jury handed up indictments in Shenandoah County last week charging people with crimes such as embezzlement and drug possession.
The grand jury, which convened Dec. 12 in Shenandoah County Circuit Court, indicted the following individuals:
• Nui-Tay Janae Ross, 36, of Philadelphia, on two counts of child endangerment on Dec. 17, 2017. A criminal complaint filed in the case states that Virginia Trooper J.T. Custer charged Ross during a traffic stop after her vehicle appeared on radar to travel 101 mph in a 70-mph zone near the 267 mile marker on Interstate 81. The trooper indicated that one child was not buckled in the vehicle.
• Todd Jerry Somogy, 35, of Phoenix, Arizona, on one count each of possession of heroin and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance
• Jonathan Jerome Judy, 44, of Maysville, West Virginia, on one count of strangulation on June 28, 2017. A criminal complaint filed in the case states that Woodstock police officer S.W. Leake responded to the Econo Lodge, 1290 S. Main St. on June 28, 2017, for a report of an assault. The female victim who works at the Econo Lodge reported that a man staying at the hotel and later identified as Judy pushed her down in the laundry room, got on top of her and began to choke her with one hand. Judy stuck his other hand down the victim’s throat, the complaint states. The victim and her husband who works as the manager of the hotel later identified Judy as the suspect.
• Nicholas William Glasco, 21, of 213 Peppertree Lane, Winchester, on one count of possession of MDMA on Aug. 3, 2017. Glasco pleaded guilty to the charge the same day as his indictment and Judge Clark A. Ritchie sentenced the defendant to one year in prison with all time suspended. A criminal complaint filed in the case indicates that the charge stemmed from a response by law enforcement to a suspected drug overdose at 683 E. Queen St., Strasburg. An occupant of the residence told an investigator that Glasco took Xanax and stopped breathing. The investigator searched the residence after rescue workers took Glasco to the hospital and found a scale with residue that tested positive for MDMA and marijuana. Glasco told the investigator the scale belonged to him. Glasco pleaded guilty in accordance with an agreement reached between his lawyer, David A. Downes, and Commonwealth’s Attorney Amanda Wiseley.
