A Toano man will spend the next six months in jail after accepting a plea deal to driving under the influence for the third time within five years.

Nicholas Maday, 33, of the 300 block of Racefield Drive, entered the guilty plea as part of Monday morning proceedings in New Kent Circuit Court.

In a summary of evidence provided by Commonwealth’s Attorney Linwood Gregory, on Nov. 6, 2018 shortly after 12:30 a.m., New Kent Sheriff’s Office received reports of a reckless driver on Route 33 (Eltham Road). A New Kent deputy responded to the area and eventually located the vehicle crashed in the trees along Route 30 near Henrico Jail East in Barhamsville. When the officer searched the vehicle, he found that nobody was inside but located Maday sitting nearby. Another deputy along with a state trooper arrived shortly, starting a conversation with the defendant. The defendant’s speech was slurred and had bloodshot eyes and was transferred to the hospital. Upon a search of the crashed vehicle discovered several beer cans and other alcoholic beverage that was cold to the touch.

At the hospital, Maday consented to a blood test where his blood-alcohol content level was .112, which is above the legal limit. Further information revealed that the defendant had two previous DUIs in 2018, prompting the charge and additional arrest.

Under the plea agreement, Maday received a five-year sentence with four years, six months suspended. The six months of active time is the minimum mandatory time he must serve under the state statute. He must also pay a $1,000 fine.

In other circuit court proceedings:

–Joshua Caleb Augburn, 19, currently of Henrico Jail East, Barhamsville, entered a guilty plea to an amended charge of unlawful wounding (originally malicious wounding) as part of a plea agreement.

In a summary of evidence, on Dec. 27, 2018, an inmate at Henrico Jail East noticed items stolen from his cell. When he asked who took them, Augburn confronted the victim and an altercation ensued. During the fight, Augburn punched and stomped on the man, resulting in the victim having bruises and swelling throughout his body. The victim was moved to an area to address his medical needs while Augburn was charged for his attack.

Under the agreement, the defendant received a five-year sentence, with four years, six months suspended (six months to serve).

–Julia Catherine Wilson, 24, of the 1800 block of Hurst Drive, Hampton, pled guilty to one count of possession of a controlled substance (hydrocodone) as part of a plea agreement.

In a summary of evidence, on Oct. 2, 2018, a New Kent deputy stopped after he noticed a disabled vehicle. As he approached the vehicle, he noticed the passenger reaching for a gun on the center console and ordered him to drop it. After the situation was diffused, the officer ordered the passenger and the driver of the car, identified as Wilson, out of the vehicle. As Wilson exited the vehicle, the officer noticed a pill in the cup-holder. A search of the vehicle ensued and when the officer asked the passenger of the vehicle if the pills belonged to him, Wilson spoke up and admitted that the three pills discovered in the vehicle were hers. A test of the pills revealed to contain hydrocodone.

Under the agreement, no formal finding was rendered as Wilson will enter into the First Offender Program. If she successfully completes the one-year program, the charge will be dismissed.
