During the summer of 2017, police said William Piatt, 33, robbed two jewelry stores, a gas station, broke into a man’s room at a motel in Newark and robbed him, and attempted to rob another man at an apartment complex in New Castle. During four of the crimes, Piatt displayed what appeared to be a firearm.

Piatt faces 6 to 82 years in prison when sentenced by a Superior Court judge in June.

In September 2016, Wright and another woman began fighting in front of a home in the unit block of East 23rd Street when Wright pulled out a knife and repeatedly stabbed the other woman. Wright pled guilty in Superior Court to Assault Second Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony, and will be sentenced by a Superior Court judge to between 2 and 33 years in prison in August.

An investigation showed Daniel Wall, had numerous images of child pornography on his computer and other devices. Wall also had a video showing him touching a young girl. Wall pled guilty in Superior Court to 4 counts of Dealing in Child Pornography and 1 count of Unlawful Sexual Contact First Degree. A Superior Court judge will sentence Wall in July.
