Two indicted for sexual assault, sex trafficking

Total of 28 during term of grand jury

FAIRMONT — A Marion County grand jury returned 15 indictments during its second and final meeting of the February term of court Tuesday, bringing the total indictments to 28 this term.

Tuesday’s indictments included Lewis Kelly Dailey, 23, of Ratliff, Ky., and Jamey Glenn Dodrill, 37, of Fairmont. Dailey and Dodrill were indicted for sex trafficking of minors, three counts of sexual assault in the second degree, and three counts of sexual assault in the third degree.

In September, Dailey and Dodrill were charged with one count of sex trafficking of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual assault.

Cpl. S.D. Swiger, with the West Virginia State Police, said at the time of their arrests that the men were charged in connection to a rape case involving a girl at a Washington Avenue residence in Clarksburg. Swiger said the residence belonged to Dodrill’s ex-wife.
