The Rhalys’ homes were flooded twice- first on July 30, 2002, and again on April 6,200.3. After the first flood, the Rhalys brought suit against the city, alleging that the ditch had not been properly maintained, and against BFI, Inc. and Waste Management of Mississippi, Inc., alleging that they each negligently placed a dumpster too close to the ditch. After the 2003 flood, the Rhalys brought another suit, alleging that the second flood had been caused the same way, except that it involved only a single dumpster owned by Waste Management. The trial court consolidated the two cases. The City timely filed answers to Rhalys’ suits, but trial court struck the answers as a sanction for a discovery violation.
Alford plea – When a defendant neither wants to admit full guilt, nor do they want to plead no contest or innocent, there is yet another possible option. If a defendant wants to assert that they are indeed innocent, but they know that the prosecution has enough evidence to prove that they committed the crime they are being charged for, they can enter an “Alford plea,” which is also known as a “Kennedy plea” in West Virginia. Essentially, this plea is a guilty plea, not because of an admission to the crime, but because the prosecutor has enough evidence to obtain a conviction in court. Plea bargain – When the prosecutor and the defendant in a criminal case make an agreement on a guilty plea in return from some sort of concession from the prosecutor, the agreement is known as a “plea bargain.”

I am writing this letter on behalf of the case regarding Shaun Ewing. Court date is sceduled for February 10, 2017 in court room 7. I was the complainant and victim in the matter and would like to respectfully request dismissal of the charges against him in this matter. The reason for my request is that at the time I was upset and emotional and I was not thinking rationally about the situation. Since the time of the incident I have had the opportunity to reflect upon the matter and I now realize that people make mistakes and say and do things they wouldn't normally do when they are upset.
