Area man charged with sex assault

ELKINS – A Huttonsville man is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond after being arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl, police say.

Daniel Lee Davis, 21, was charged Thursday with two counts of third degree sexual assault, a felony. Davis was arraigned by Randolph County Magistrate George M. Riggleman.

According to the criminal complaint, on March 12 West Virginia State Police officials interviewed the alleged victim, who “disclosed that she had sexual intercourse with (Davis)” on four different occasions, according to the criminal complaint.

The alleged victim told police she would meet Davis near her residence, and the two of them would “drive around for a while and then have sexual intercourse,” the complaint states.

On April 7, Cpl. K.A. Corley obtained a confession from Davis admitting he knew the alleged victim was 14 years old, the complaint reads. Police said Davis “further stated that the victim performed oral sex on one occasion on him, and on another occasion he had sexual intercourse” with her.

Davis told police that both incidents occurred in February.

Also in Randolph County Magistrate Court Friday:

Dreama L. Hinton, 38, of Harman, was charged with one count of writing a worthless check, a felony. Hinton is free on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond.

State Police officials discovered Hinton “passed a Wood Forest National Bank check to Auto Barn Pre-owned for $500 on May 31, 2013” that was returned for insufficient funds, according to the criminal complaint.

When Hinton “failed to resolve” the incident with Randolph County Magistrate Court, state police executed a search warrant at the Wood Forest National Bank for her records, which showed she did not have the funds to cover the $500 check.
