Sexual assault charges against an Inwood woman were dismissed without prejudice in Tucker County Circuit Court this week.
Francesca Cortes, 26, of 45 Murlin Drive, appeared with her attorney, Megan Allender, Thursday. Cortes was indicted in February on two counts each of first degree sexual assault, sexual abuse by a parent or guardian and incest.
Allender asked Nelson that Cortes' charges be dismissed with prejudice. Tucker County Prosecuting Attorney Ray LaMora III agreed for the charges to be dismissed but dismissed without prejudice, meaning they could be brought back up at a later date. LaMora said there were some issues with witnesses.
Also in Tucker County Circuit Court Thursday:
Keihl was arrested in early February after police said he reported a false emergency and made false claims. Nelson scheduled Keihl's pretrial hearing for 9:30 a.m. Aug. 12.
Boyles was indicted in February for failure to register or provide notice of registration.
The criminal complaint from Virginia said police believe Harrison stole a prescription of 90-plus hydromorphone pills on June 21.
The complaint alleges the prescription was hidden in a sports drink bottle. According to the complaint, the pills were taken from Woodbridge, Va., and Harrison did not have permission to remove them from the residence.
"We cannot resolve the Virginia matters here in Tucker County, W.Va.," Nelson said. "It is your desire to waive extradition to get back to Prince William County?"
Harrison said she wanted to go back to Virginia, and signed the extradition paperwork.
Waybright was indicted on one count of sexual assault in the second degree, a felony. Police said he had intercourse with the alleged victim July 4, 2013, after she told him she did not want to have sex with him. Nelson set Waybright's pretrial hearing for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 3.
Cooper asked for $3,000 for an investigator and said discovery needed to be provided. Nelson agreed to the investigator funds, and set Miller's pretrial hearing for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 3.
