Two people convicted in recent trials in Ritchie County

By  | 

HARRISVILLE, W.Va.-(WTAP) Ritchie County Prosecutor Sam Rogers says Benny Ray Workman was convicted by a jury Tuesday night on 12 counts charging him with second-degree sexual assault and sexual abuse by a custodian.

Workman was indicted back in January for a series of incidents in June and July of 2016 involving two individuals.

He could face more than 100 years in prison for the convictions.

And November 29, a Ritchie County jury convicted Burton Anderson of one count of each of attempted first-degree murder and malicious assault.

Anderson was accused of running over Larry Leon Foster II, who was riding a dirt bike on Mayberry Road in February, 2016.

A criminal complaint says Anderson called Foster a "snitch" and threatened to kill him.
