An inmate at the South Central Regional Jail is facing felony assault charges after he was accused of striking two officers during an altercation.
According to a criminal complaint, Shelton David Cash, 44, of Elkview struck an officer in the face with a closed fist and bloodied his nose. Cash is then said to have struck another officer and resisted being restrained.
According to the Wheeling Intelligencer, Cash was arrested in August while he was staying at a Youth Services System Facility on Wheeling Island in Ohio County. He was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography and a single count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Kanawha County deputies said a 12-year old girl told them Cash had sex with her and used a cell phone to take pictures of the sex acts.
Upon executing a search warrant at the facility, police said they found Cash’s cell phone, which contained five photos of him engaged in sex acts with the girl. Officers also said they found a gun under his pillow.
Cash was convicted of first degree murder in 1992 and served 16 years in prison, before being paroled in 2008.
