Arraignment for former Wood County Schools employee continued
A new hearing date will be announced soon.
PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - A magistrate preliminary hearing for Ryan Gaston is being continued after the defendant’s attorney, Bill Merriman made the motion.
Gaston was arrested on March 7th for battery and assault of a disabled child.
The attorney cites a schedule conflict prior to the court proceeding according to magistrate Jody Purkey.
“Prior to the scheduling of the hearing we received a motion from his attorney, Mr. Bill Merriman in regards asking for continuance. The continuance was granted by me on the grounds that the attorney had a prior engagement,” Purkey said.
Magistrate Purkey says there will be a reset within 20 days of the day of continuance.
