MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Former Martinsburg High School star quarterback Justin “Cookie” Clinton pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Tuesday in Berkeley County Circuit Court on 12 criminal counts including kidnapping.


Cookie Clinton remains in jail on $285,000 bail.

Clinton, 19, was indicted by a Berkeley County grand jury last week. He’s charged with 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 crimes allegedly happened last September, November and December.

Circuit Judge John Yoder tentatively scheduled Clinton’s┬átrial for May 6. He remains in the Eastern Regional Jail on $285,000 bail.

Clinton was a first-team All State player in 2012 when he led Martinsburg to its third straight AAA football title.

    WVU did not recruit the kid. He signed a letter of intent to play at the University of Charleston, but I believe his initial arrest occured before he made it to campus.

    Herd you're an idiot. The money was in his office, in HIS office. Who cares where it was at, the fact is Cookie stole it. He also was caught red handed in the act at the other places as well. Everyone was on the last post saying it's Coach Walker's fault, the schools fault, the parents or lack of parents fault. Eventually, you have to take responsibility for things and man up to your wrong doings. Cookie was a nice kid and a heck of an athlete, but his mistakes are his. No one else is to blame. It's not the systems fault he broke into a school and someones home to steal. Yes innocent until proven guilty, but when they have you on film twice, like football "the eyes in the sky, never lie."

    I hope the Athletic Director and School Aministrators have learned from this situation that need not have happened. Apparenlty, it was common practice and common knowledge in the community that the AD regularly left large sums of money in his office and not locked up. Mr. Clinton apparently decided to act on the information. I am in no way condoning what Mr. Clinton did -- he was wrong and must now face the consequences of his actions.
