Va. guardsman fined $15 for W.Va. gun incident

MARTINSBURG (AP) — A Virginia National Guard member will pay $15 in fines for running near two Martinsburg schools while carrying a training rifle.

Media outlets report that 23-year-old William Everett Alemar pleaded no contest Wednesday in Berkeley County Magistrate Court to public intoxication and misdemeanor willful disturbance of a school.

In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dismissed felony charges of committing a terrorist act and wearing body armor in the commission of a felony.

Under the agreement, Alemar received a seven-day jail sentence with credit for the nine days he spent in custody after he was arrested Aug.20.. He also must continue treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

Alemar’s attorney, Kevin D. Mills, says his client made a poor decision.
