BECKLEY -

A Raleigh County man who was part of an operation to cut phone lines and steal copper was sentenced Tuesday.

Harley Fraley of Beckley pleaded guilty to grand larceny after he and Clarence Green of Shady Spring cut Frontier telephone lines near the Whitesville detachment of the West Virginia State Police.

He and Green's actions left about 5,000 people without power for days.

Judge John Hutchison told Fraley at his sentencing hearing Tuesday, Jan. 21, he wants to make sure people in those areas of the county are not abused by others.

Fraley was sentenced to not less than one or more than 10 years in jail.  He is also liable for restitution $14,250 for the 500 feet of copper stolen.

Fraley will also receive 3 years probation and in-patient drug rehab that is required. If he doesn't go or gets kicked out he violates probation.
