POINT PLEASANT — Bond has been revoked for one man, while a plea agreement has been reached for another man in two separate cases in Mason County Circuit Court.

Cheyenne C. Roush, 27, was arrested by personnel with the Mason County Sheriff’s Department and charged with breaking and entering, grand larceny, earlier this month. Prior to this most recent arrest, Roush was free on bond in relation to other charges.

According to court filings in the office of Mason County Circuit Court Clerk Bill Withers, a motion was filed by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney R.F. Stein Jr. to revoke Roush’s bond. Roush had been indicted by the September term of the grand jury for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. His bond was set at $25,000 in Mason County Magistrate Court and once posted, he was released while awaiting further court proceedings.

Between Oct. 6-7, Roush was then accused of committing the felony offenses of breaking and entering and grand larceny. A condition of his bond required that he not violate any state or federal criminal laws. His bond was revoked by Judge David W. Nibert on Oct. 13 and he remains housed at the Western Regional Jail.

In other circuit court news, a plea agreement has been reached in a separate case involving a Point Pleasant man. James F. Will III, 33, has entered a plea of guilty to the felony offense of attempt to commit a felony.

Sentencing for this offense could include imprisonment for not less than one nor more than three years, or to be confined in jail not less than six months nor more than 12 months, and fined not exceeding $500. Will will be sentenced by Judge Nibert at 10 a.m., Nov. 30.

Will was indicted by the September term of the grand jury for alleged possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. This case was originally investigated by the Point Pleasant Police Department.

Representing the state was Prosecuting Attorney R. Craig Tatterson, while Will was represented by Attorney Damon Morgan, Jr.
