Court officials said John Wayne Hedrick, 32, had been convicted of felonies three times before his conviction in the 2012 case, requiring him to be sentenced to life in prison. Jones said Hedrick is currently serving on three felony sentences from 2008, 2010 and 2013.
Jones said Hedrick also received a sentence for five other convictions. The judge gave him a 20 to 95 year sentence to run concurrently with the life-sentence. This mean the 20 to 95 year sentence will run along the same time as the life-sentence.
Hedrick will not be eligible for parole for 20 years; on top of the three felony sentences he’s currently serving that deal with prior cases.
Hedrick was previously convicted of burglary and was on parole when he committed the crimes in 2012.
As you may recall, Hedrick and two other co-defendants, Rebecca Sims and Justin W. Harrison, assaulted and robbed Justin Catlett on
Hedrick and the two co-defendants then drove to Carlett’s apartment at Franklin Manor in Martinsburg and broke into his home.
Hedrick is currently being held at the Eastern Regional Jail.
