Marshall County, WV Man Gets Maximum for Sexual Abuse of 2 Teens


Jamie Ickes will spend the next 10 to 50 years in prison for sexual abuse in the first degree that he committed against two teenage girls, sisters, last Fall.

It was an emotional morning in court as the girls mother, Jessica, read letters from the girls allowed in front of Judge David Hummel.

“I long for the day that I hear the answer to the question what in your right mind made you go crazy enough to do what you did to me,” Jessica said.

After hearing what the children’s mother and the attorneys had to say in the case, Judge Hummel proceeded to handout his sentencing, sending Ickes to the West Virginia State penitentiary for the maximum amount of time allowed for this crime.

“Sir, what you’ve done is a monstrous act against innocence,” Hummel said.

“Any parent that’s gone through this, any child that’s gone through this, it’s hell; I mean how do you ever get over it and the fact that he’s behind bars somewhat of a relief, I mean we still have a lot of healing to go through. He damaged, he did a lot of damage,” Jessica said.

During the course of this case it was discovered that this isn’t the first time Ickes has committed crimes like these. He has also been convicted of crimes involving sexual acts against minors in Ohio.

Judge Hummel ordered Ickes to pay for any and all therapy expenses the family may incur as a result of his actions.

Ickes will be placed on probation for 15 years after he is released and be required to register as a sex offender for life.
