Bond altered in child abuse case

ELKINS — Bond was modified Tuesday for a Randolph County woman accused of striking a juvenile in her care.

Angela Shiral Hartley, 31, of Beverly, is charged with one felony count of child abuse creating risk of injury. Her bond was modified from $25,000 cash-only to $25,000 cash or surety by Randolph County Chief Magistrate George M. “Mike” Riggleman.

Additionally, she waived her preliminary hearing, meaning her case will be bound over to the Randolph County Circuit Court for presentation to a grand jury and possible indictment.

Randolph County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Leckta Poling represented the state while Hartley appeared with Morris Davis as defense counsel. Riggleman presided.

If convicted, Hartley could be sentenced to not less than one nor more than five years in the state penitentiary, fined not less than $100 nor more than $1,000, or both. Or, at the discretion of the court, sentenced to not more than one year in jail.
