A Providence Forge man entered straight guilty pleas to using a stolen credit card to make purchases during Friday morning procedures in Charles City Circuit Court.

Charles Lloyd White, 48, of the 7600 block of Courthouse Road, entered guilty pleas to one count each of credit card larceny and misdemeanor credit card fraud. One count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle was dropped.

In a summary of evidence, on Feb. 27, White was residing with a family member within the county. While living with the family, he intercepted a piece of mail that belonged to another family member. Inside the envelope was a credit card that was used to make purchases at the Dollar General in Charles City. After an investigation, he was arrested for the offenses.

Formal sentencing for White was continued under the condition to stay out of trouble for one-year under a program similar to the first offender program. If he does, his credit card larceny charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 22, 2021.

In other circuit court proceedings:

–Tyreek Darnell Bradley, 22, of the 4700 block of Barnetts Road, received formal sentencing on two counts of carnal knowledge without force.

During a Dec. 20, 2019 trial, Bradley accepted a plea agreement to the crimes. During his trial, a summary of evidence revealed that Bradley had communications with an underage teenage and agreed to meet up with the underage victim for sexual intercourse. During an investigation, Bradley told officers that he thought the girls was of the consensual age of 18.

Bradley received a 10-year sentence with nine years, three months suspended (nine months to serve) on the first count. All 10 years on the second count were suspended.

–Whitney Leeann Young, 20, of the 8600 block of Samaria Lane, Providence Forge, entered a guilty plea to an amended charge of unlawful wounding (originally malicious wounding).

In a summary of evidence, on Sept. 16, 2019, an argument on social media led to an incident at a home on Samaria Lane. During the incident, Young stabbed the shoulder of the victim. After an investigation, Young was determined to be the one to commit the offense and was arrested.

A presentence report is being prepared for Young, with formal sentencing scheduled for Aug. 7.
