NEWPORT—After a  four-hour hearing on Monday, Circuit Judge Ben W. Hooper II officially took under advisement a request from a Newport man for a new trial or a new appeal of cocaine-related charges which led to his conviction in two trials in 2008 and 2009.Doyle Everette Haney, 38, of Newport, is currently serving a 30-year sentence on two convictions for sale and delivery of cocaine. Judge Hooper heard the defendant’s petition for post-conviction relief on Monday.Based on his comments at the close of the hearing, Judge Hooper appears unlikely to give Haney a new trial when he hands down an official decision in February. But Judge Hooper appears ready to grant Haney a new appeal of his 2008 convictions on charges of sale and delivery of cocaine.For more details, please see the Tuesday edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
