Three individuals were sentenced Oct. 23 in U.S. District Court in Elkins before Chief Judge John Preston Bailey, according to a news release issued late last week.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II announced that:

Martin was ordered by the court to make restitution in the amount of $1,522.62. Free on bond, he will self-report to the designated federal institution. This case was investigated by the U.S. Forest Service, West Virginia State Police, Pendleton County Sheriff's Department, Grant County Sheriff's Department, Hardy County Sheriff's Department and the Petersburg Police Department.
