Judge Colin Gibb could've left Wells free on bond pending sentencing, but opted to send the 34- year old to jail immediately based on the seriousness of the crime.
Wells was arrested last school year, after a resource officer received a tip that Wells was providing cigarettes and marijuana to students -- while working as a substitute at Pulaski County's alternative school.
Upon further investigation, police found that in one instance, Wells actually left school property, during lunch, and shared a marijuana cigarette with two students.

Jason Woodson came to court today, considerably more contrite than he was the day after it happened. He's been in counseling, is on medication for depression. Though he was suspended from school for a full year, the would-be senior is earning credits toward graduation.
He's been charged with felonies before- -destruction of property, making bomb threats- -but was never convicted. So Judge Joe Clarke said the conviction remains this time.
Woodson will have to pay the city school system 250 dollars for the interruption of classes at P-H, perform 64 hours of community service and his driver's license will be restricted for 90 days.

[SUPER=03-Bedford/September 13;]


The United Steelworkers strike in Bedford is almost three weeks old.
Rubatex is now using replacement workers brought in from other plants.
Along with salaried workers ... Rubatex chief negotiator Jim Laurin tells us about 200 people are doing the work that used to be done by more than 400 union members.
And he said in a telephone interview -- quote -- it's been a lot easier than I expected.
Laurin won't say how many of the striking workers might lose their jobs...
But he did say the company's pre-strike workforce was bloated.
Talks at Rubatex broke down over issues of forced overtime and company contributions to health plans.
Rubatex says it has made its final offer and is still waiting to hear from the union.
(-----------)
[Live=Scott Full/Microwave]
[SUPER=05-Roanoke Co.]


For its part ... the union tells us the ball is in the Rubatex court -- that the company needs to contact union officials or talks will not resume.
The union president wasn't reachable today.
By and large ... the union is sticking with its strategy of not talking about the strike, hoping actions speak louder than words.

Curtis Tidwell had been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Nick Olivarri last fall.
But the prosecutor decided there wasn't enough evidence to convict him,
So he went for two lesser charges, including illegal disposal of a body.
Tidwell was convicted on those counts today. He'll be sentenced in December.
Olivarri's wife, Sandra, is still awaiting trial for the murder.
