POMEROY — One year to the day after being arraigned on three counts of aggravated robbery, Marcy Craig is scheduled to stand trial on the charges.
Marcy Craig, 38, of Long Bottom, is now scheduled to stand trial on April 30, as she faces three counts of aggravated robbery for allegedly serving as an accomplice to her brother, Alex Craig, in the armed robberies which occurred in March and April 2012. Aggravated robbery as charged is a felony of the first degree which carries a maximum prison sentence of 11 years and a maximum fine of $20,000.
Marcy Craig and Alex Craig were arraigned on April 30, 2012, on charges related to those robberies. At the time of the initial arrest, the state alleged that Marcy Craig served as a driver for her brother as he robbed the three gas stations.
The robberies occurred on March 30 at the TNT PitStop in Syracuse, April 2 at the TNT PitStop in Chester, and April 10 at the 124 Mart near Pomeroy.
Craig’s trial is now set to begin on April 30, with Judge Michael Ward presiding. Current Meigs County Common Pleas Judge I. Carson Crow recused himself from the case due to a conflict.
The trial was set to begin in late January, but was continued due to the death of the defendant’s father. The trial had previously been continued from the fall of 2012 at the request of the defense.
According to court records at least 17 individuals have been subpoenaed to testify at the trial.
Marcy Craig is represented by Gallipolis based attorney William Eachus. She is currently being housed in the Washington County Jail as she awaits trial.
Alex Craig entered a guilty plea to three counts of aggravated robbery in August 2012, and was sentenced in November to 30 years in prison. He is incarcerated at Ross Correctional Institution. Two counts of kidnapping charged against Alex Craig were dismissed according to the terms of the plea agreement.
Alex Craig was also a suspect in robberies at gas stations in Mason County, W.Va., and Jackson County, W.Va., although no charges have been brought in connection with those crimes.
