Man found innocent after one-day trial

Published 1:16pm Wednesday, October 9, 2013

IRONTON — An Ironton man accused of domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend was found not guilty after a one-day jury trial Monday.

Curtis Sudderth, 32, of 819 S. Seventh St., was arraigned on the fourth-degree felony charge in September and entered a not guilty plea.

Warren Morford, attorney for Sudderth, said the jury did not find that the victim in the case was credible.

“We’d just like to thank the jury for their conscientious service,” Morford said.

In an unrelated case, Elvis Adkins 25, of 518 Marion Pike Apt 5, Coal Grove, was found guilty after a two-day trial Thursday and Friday.

Adkins will be sentenced today on a charge of complicity to illegal manufacture of drugs.

Adkins is one of five people accused of making meth in an apartment in South Point.
