TWO WAIVE PRELIMINARY HEARINGS ON FELONY CHARGES

Two people who are facing felony charges in Jefferson County waived their preliminary hearings Wednesday. 36 year old Bethany Hart is charged with sexual assault, sexual abuse, child abuse creating the risk of injury, and child abuse creating injury. West Virginia State Police say all the charges involve a 15-year-old victim in Berkeley County. Hart remains behind bars in the Eastern Regional Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond. Meanwhile, 25 year old Nathan Clark of Charles Town, is facing a felony charge of terroristic threats for threatening to commit a “mass shooting” with an unknown target. Clark was being held at the Eastern Regional Jail, but he has since been placed on home confinement.
