MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Former Martinsburg quarterback Justin ‘Cookie’ Clinton has been charged with 12 criminal counts over three separate indictments, including felony kidnapping.
Overall, Clinton is facing two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of petit larceny, two counts of grand larceny, two counts of breaking and entering of an automobile, one count of burglary, one count of kidnapping, one count of battery and one count of domestic battery.
The charges of kidnapping, burglary, battery and domestic battery go back to a December 6th, 2013 incident where Clinton is accused of fleeing the scene of a domestic incident and holding a woman against her will – police say he initially forced his way into the woman’s Martinsburg apartment.
The charges of breaking and entering, petit larceny and grand larceny stem from two incidents in August and September of 2013 where Clinton is accused of breaking into Martinsburg High School and stealing cash, among other items.
A third indictment, which also includes grand larceny and petit larceny, charges Clinton with two counts of breaking and entering of an automobile as well. That incident occurred in November as Clinton is accused of stealing $25,000, a revolver and other items.
The former Martinsburg quarterback was named first team all-state in 2012, leading the Bulldogs to what was their third straight state championship.
