Two area residents face revocations

WHEELING – Two area residents are back in federal custody after failing to comply with the terms of their supervised releases.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Glenn Albert Stewart Jr. , a Follansbee resident, was sentenced to 40 months in prison for testing positive for the use of marijuana; failure to timely notify a probation officer of a citation received following a car accident; possession of drug paraphernalia; possession of an edged weapon; a conviction in Hancock County for three counts of house burglary; and, a conviction in Ohio County for burglary.

Stewart was sentenced in 1998 to 180 months in jail and five years of supervised release for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was remanded into the custody of U.S. Marshals pending designation to a federal prison.

Wayne Casto, 43, of Weirton was sentenced to 30 days in prison for two separate convictions in Hancock County for failing to register as a sex offender.

Casto was sentenced to 37 months in prison and 10 years of supervised release for possession of child pornography. He is free on bond, but will self-report to a designated federal institution, Ihlenfeld said.
