was less than the 15-21 months incarceration
sought by Assistant U.S. District Attorney Erik
Barnett. And when all is said and done, there’s still
no guarantee Megale will be able to beat his own
addiction and stay on the straight and narrow.
“Only you can keep yourself clean,” U.S. District
Court Judge Leonie Brinkema warned him.
On March 24, Megale pleaded guilty to distributing heroin to a person under 21. He also acknowledged that, from January 2008 through Jan. 29 of
this year, he distributed heroin on a regular basis.
Four people died from heroin overdoses as a result of the drug ring’s actions. One was Alicia Lannes,
19, of Centreville. Yet her death failed to deter any
of the dealers from getting other young men and
women hooked on heroin.
“On March 8, 2008, three days after Alicia Lannes
died, the defendant sold heroin to a girl who, like
him, was 17,” said Barnett at Megale’s June 12 sentencing. “She overdosed, was hospitalized and survived — and she and her mother are in the courtroom today. She overdosed because she ingested
heroin after getting it from the defendant.”
Barnett said that, by that time — and throughout
that summer — Megale had become a “reliable”
heroin dealer. The argument’s been made, said
Barnett, that the 17-year-old’s overdose was “her
fault,” because she chose to use heroin of her own,
free will.
“But Mr. Megale sold heroin to an immature and
unstable drug addict, and we can’t excuse that conduct,” said the prosecutor. “True, he stayed with her,
provided support and called 911 — but he also provided the dangerous situation [in the first place].”
FURTHERMORE, he said, Megale’s already been
“rewarded” for helping the girl. Said Barnett: “The
government had the ability last year to ask the court
to transfer Mr. Megale to a mandatory, 20-year minimum [sentencing status] and we did not.”
And once again, someone’s overdose did nothing
to prevent Megale from using and distributing
heroin. Authorities say that, after turning 18 in January — thus becoming liable for prosecution as an
adult — he continued selling heroin to five more
people under age 21.
In a Jan. 30 affidavit, FBI Special Agent Bryan
Wilhite wrote that, on Jan. 24, a person directed by
law enforcement gave Megale $80 to purchase
heroin for him, which Megale did, from his Washington, D.C., supplier. Afterward, authorities stopped
their vehicle and found Megale in possession of that
heroin. Wilhite wrote that Megale actually admitted purchasing $200 worth of heroin that day from
the same source from which he’d bought heroin on
“at least three prior occasions” in January.
“When he continued to pool money with people
and sell heroin in 2009, he knew the government
was investigating him — and yet he continued,” said
Barnett. “Nothing really stopped him.” That’s why,
he said, the best place for Megale has been the Alexandria jail, where he’s been incarcerated since January.
“He filled the void created by the arrests of [nowconvicted heroin dealers] Quickly, Nash, Schreider
and Gibson and became a regular dealer,” said
Barnett. He said authorities arrested Megale in January because “We could not delay and allow another
young person to suffer — or to have Mr. Megale, at
age 18, clearly face a 20-year, mandatory-minimum
sentence.”
But Defense Attorney Fred Sinclair said Megale
was a victim too because he was also addicted to
heroin. He said Megale’s local source overdosed and
died, but Megale and two others still pooled their
money to buy heroin and share it among themselves.
He also noted that Megale didn’t drive, so others
drove him to the District for the purchases.
Regarding Megale’s continuing to deal heroin after becoming his client, Sinclair said, “Frankly, he let
me down, and his parents and I believed he should
sit in the Alexandria jail and consider his misdeeds.”
Earlier, said Sinclair, Megale’s parents sent him to an
expensive treatment facility which was for behavior
modification, but “didn’t treat his addiction. So when
he came out, he used Oxycodone and heroin.”
Sinclair said Megale completed a 10-week, substance-abuse course in jail, obtained his GED and was
a jail trustee. “There’s a redemptive quality to him,”
said the attorney. “At 14, he switched peers, nosedived
and went downhill.” Sinclair then asked Judge
Brinkema to “temper justice with mercy” and sentence Megale to just 12 months and a day.
He said Megale’s parents want to move to New York,
where their son would be placed into a Catholic facility, Hope House, “to address his addiction and the
psychological problems that led to it. It’s a one-year,
inpatient treatment, so he won’t begin his mainstream
life until that’s done.”
“There’s a job waiting for him, and community college,” added Sinclair. “so plans are afoot to turn
Matthew’s life around, but the only one who can do
it is Matthew. Beginning at age 14, he used marijuana, then ecstasy, cocaine and heroin. [But] he’s
gotten a cold dose of reality in jail.”
MEGALE THEN STOOD and addressed the court.
“Poor choices led me to this point,” he said. “It’s hurt
not only myself, but the ones closest to me, my family — especially my little sister and my mother. I take
full responsibility and I will overcome this, one way
or another.”
Brinkema said the most difficult part of her job is
sentencing young offenders. “Do you give them a hard
hit, the first time, or give them a break,” she asked.
She then spoke directly to Megale.
“The fact that you continued to be involved in
heroin after the investigation began and your parents had hired you an attorney — and you continued
to associate with these people and use drugs — is an
indicator that the lesson hasn’t been learned,” said
Brinkema.
However, she also noted the number of letters she’d
received on Megale’s behalf, how his problems had
adversely affected his mother’s health and that his
wheelchair-bound sister “depends upon” him. The
judge was also pleased with how well he’d behaved
in jail. “So I’m going to take a chance on you,” said
Brinkema. “But ultimately, it’s on your shoulders.”
She then imposed a sentence of one year and one
day, plus credit for time already served, and placed
Megale on six years supervised release. She also advised him that she’ll maintain jurisdiction over his
probation, so “If you get in trouble in New York, you’ll
come back to this court. That means no violations of
law, including traffic laws.”
Megale must remain drug-free, submit to regular
drug testing and complete whatever drug and mental-health treatment his probation officer recommends. And he must maintain full-time education or
employment because, Brinkema told him, “You need
lots of structure in your life for the next few years.”
She also said she’d recommend he be incarcerated
in the Federal Correctional Institution camp in
Cumberland, Md., so he could participate in its 50hour drug-treatment program.
Afterward, outside the courtroom, Sinclair said, “I
got what I asked for; I was quite happy with the result.”

Newsome Sentenced to Jail
A Chantilly man has been convicted of assault by mob. He is
Ross Aristotle Newsome, 19, of 14064 Eagle Chase Circle. In an
April 29 affidavit robbery, Fairfax County Police Det. Eric Deane
detailed the case against him.
Deane wrote that on March 28, around 10:20 p.m., a male was
walking to his home through an apartment-complex parking lot
at Route 50 and Majestic Lane in Greenbriar when the incident
occurred. According to the detective, “Several young males approached him, beat him and stole his personal belongings.”
The subsequent police investigation developed Newsome as a
suspect, and on April 23, he was charged with robbery and assault by mob. He appeared on June 8 in General District Court,
and at that time, the robbery offense was dropped. Judge Michael
Cassidy then found him guilty of the assault and sentenced him
to 20 days in jail (360 days with 340 suspended. Newsome was
also ordered to pay $100 restitution to the victim.
Gambling Case to Grand Jury
The criminal case against a Fairfax Center man is moving forward in the justice system. He is Michael G. Cox, 47, of 4132
Fountainside Lane, Apt. 301, in Fairfax, and he’s accused of conducting an illegal gambling operation.
A detective with the Fairfax County police Special Investigations, Narcotics and Money Laundering Unit explained the case
against him in a Nov. 12 affidavit. He stated that, acting in an
undercover capacity, he placed illegal sports bets with Cox from
May 20, 2008 through Nov. 9, 2008.
Wrote the detective: “[I] placed over 180 illegal sports bets on
professional football and professional baseball with Cox. The illegal sports bets totaled over $40,000.” Police arrested Cox on
Nov. 12, 2008, and he appeared in General District Court last
Wednesday, June 10. At that time, Judge Lisa Mayne sent his
charge to the grand jury for possible indictment.
Pears Enters Guilty Pleas
Believing that a former employee of a Vienna gym used other
people’s personal information to try to pay his rent and other
bills in December 2008, Fairfax County police arrested a Fairfax
Corner man. He is Jason Pears of 4245 Summit Corner Drive, No.
345, in Fairfax. On May 26 in Circuit Court, he pleaded guilty to
one count of identity theft and two counts of credit-card fraud.
Judge Randy Bellows then scheduled his sentencing for Sept. 4.
Suspended Sentence for Worthy
In September 2008, Fairfax County police charged a Centreville
couple in connection with an escort service that defrauded and
assaulted its clients. The charges were later dropped against the
female, but went forward against the male. Carl E. Worthy, 38, of
The Meadows community, has been convicted.
In each case involving the escort service, said police, the victim
met the female escort at a local motel or hotel. But once money
changed hands, the escort fled without providing her services. If
the victim chased her, he was assaulted by the escort’s partner
with an expandable baton.
Police said that happened on Aug. 27, 2008, and charged Worthy with crimes including malicious wounding. The Nov. 17 grand
jury indicted him on a reduced charge of unlawful wounding.
Then on May 26 in Circuit Court, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery, and Judge Marcus Williams gave him a 12-month, suspended sentence.

get them to buy alcohol for them. They did so in parking lots of
businesses holding state liquor licenses.

Larcenies Result in
Prison for 5 Years
By Bonnie Hobbs
Centre View
ommitting crimes is not
a wise thing to do — and
being on probation at the
same time only makes matters
worse. At some point, there’s a
price to pay, and Randolph Brooks
will pay it in prison.
He was sentenced last Friday to
five years behind bars and, said
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Brandon Shapiro, “This defendant is a criminal, by all means.”
In April, Brooks, 28, of no fixed
address, was convicted of five larcenies in connection with a Jan.
23 crime in Centreville’s Country
Club Manor community. A
Centreville woman, 45, started her
car in the 13900 block of Deviar
Drive and left it unattended —
with her purse inside — while she
went back inside her house. Some
10 minutes later, she discovered
her car was gone.
Fairfax County police investigated and learned that her credit
card had been used at a store in
Fair Lakes. Officers found Brooks
in a parking lot — standing next
to the stolen car, a 2003 Chevrolet
Trailblazer — and arrested him on
the spot.
On March 16, the grand jury indicted him on four counts of larceny with intent to sell, plus one
count of credit-card larceny. He
pleaded guilty to all five offenses
on April 6 in Circuit Court. He returned June 12 for sentencing.
“He was stealing vehicles while
people warmed them up and then
he sold them to undercover officers,” said Shapiro. “He said he was
going to use the money to pay his
restitution [for other offenses], but
didn’t. He also stole a credit card
from one vehicle.”
Shapiro said Brooks owes at
C
least $4,000 restitution and was
on probation in both Fairfax
County and Charles County, Md.,
when he committed these offenses. Anne Arundel County, Md.,
has a detainer on him and there’s
an outstanding warrant for Brooks
in Pennsylvania.
“He has six prior felonies,” said
the prosecutor. “I’m asking for a
significant period of incarceration.
Defense attorney Martin
Mooradian said the victims “got
their cars back” and a co-defendant, Lionel Brown, received a
two-year, suspended sentence. But
Mooradian admitted, “He didn’t
have a significant [criminal]
record.” However, he said Brooks’s
criminal past is “almost all larcenies — nothing of a violent na-

ture,” and requested a sentence of
no more than two years.
Then Brooks stood and said, “I’d
like to apologize for my actions; I
take full responsibility.”
But Judge Jonathan Thacher
had the last word. “At the time of
this offense, you were on probation from two jurisdictions,” he
told Brooks. “You have six prior
felonies and have had several failures to complete probation or
make restitution.”
On each of Brooks’s five charges,
Thacher sentenced him to three
years in prison, suspending two
years, and ran the sentences consecutively — so Brooks has five
years to serve. The judge also
placed him on three years probation for each offense and ordered
him to pay $4,300 restitution.

to be good neighbors. And he assured the panel that, “We’re a family organization, and we educate
our employees to not sell alcohol
to people already intoxicated or to
those whose age they’re not sure
of.”
Explaining that E&C is a “very
small business,” he said he personally doesn’t agree with alcohol use,
but he realizes that having the
ability to sell it at the mini-mart
would be best for the employees
there because of the money it
would yield. “We’re not a large oil
company, so the pressure we have
to sell a gallon of gas is tremendous,” said Hall. “We make less
than 10 cents/gallon, in most instances. So we need the other revenue streams to make a profit and
continue to stay in business.”
“I think it’s good that you’re revisiting this,” Hart told the panel.
“It helps to figure out what you’re
doing.”

ing in the top five percent.”
Overall, he said this has been a
terrific school year for Centreville.
“When I came here three years
ago, I wanted to concentrate on
the three As — academics, arts and
athletics — and provide quality
programs in these areas,” said
Campbell. “And based on this
year’s results, we’re very happy
with our progress.”
He said the school’s Freshman
Academy that prepares incoming
students for life as a Centreville
Wildcat has been a “tremendous
success.” And the honor code
implemented this year has helped
reduce vandalism and cheating.”
Furthermore, said Campbell,
“Modification of our Wildcat
remediation program has helped
students who were underachieving. Every day, they go to a classroom to focus on work they’ve
missed or haven’t understood. It’s
a chance to learn again and retake
tests.”
Centreville is moving into a new
age, he said, because it’s now a
majority minority school, with
non-Caucasians accounting for 53
percent of its students. Almost 25
percent of the students are Asian
— which requires the faculty and
staff to adapt to new ways of
teaching and reaching them.
“We’re having to research to
meet their needs and incorporate
their cultures and traditions into
the school and make them feel
more a part of Centreville,” said
Campbell. “Culturally, we’re finding out their parents are supportive of the school system, but not
as involved in it. So we need to
find ways to bring them into the
school.”
But on the whole, things are
going well, he said. During this
school year, Centreville received
the 2009 Governor’s Award for
Educational Excellence — the
highest honor given by the state
for academic achievement. The
International Center for Leadership in Education labeled
Centreville as a Model High School
in Virginia. The College Board selected the school’s math department for the Sieman’s Award for
its student success rate in AP math,
science and technology.
Besides all that, said Campbell,
“Our performing arts and fine arts
department won numerous, local
and regional awards and 18 out
of 22 of our athletic teams qualified for regional competition —
with four going to states. In addition, this year’s senior class will
receive over $4 million in scholarships. I’m proud to be a Wildcat.”

Local Hitters Make Headlines
Westfield’s Bour,
Paul VI’s Gregory
chosen during last
week’s professional
baseball draft.
By Jason Mackey
The Connection
s far as affiliation goes, Alex
Gregory and Justin Bour
aren’t linked by much. A
Great Falls native and a
graduate of Paul VI High School, Gregory spent four years on the Radford
University baseball team. Bour, meanwhile, graduated from Westfield High
School and has played at George Mason University for the past three years.
But last Wednesday afternoon, Gregory and Bour became intertwined
through Major
League Baseball’s
First-Year Player
Draft when their
names were called
and they were
counted upon as
the local area’s
lone representatives in the annual
process.
Gregory was a
17th-round
pick
— Alex Gregory,
(524th overall) by
Paul VI graduate the New York
Mets. The Chicago
Cubs picked Bour in the 25th round
(770th overall). Both players, who
possess nearly identical skill sets as
power-hitting first basemen, will begin their professional careers this
week.
“It’s something that you work at for
so long, and it’s great to see that all of
your hard work paid off,” Gregory
said. “I tried to outwork everybody

Westfield graduate Justin Bour hit .339 this past
spring at George Mason University and was chosen
in the 25th round by the Chicago Cubs last week.
every day.”
“It wasn’t really a big deal when I was
taken,” said Bour. “It’s just the matter of
getting the chance to go out there and play.
The round really wasn’t much of a concern.
It was just going to a good organization.”
Gregory will report to New York’s Class A
short-season affiliate, the Brooklyn Cyclones. Bour, meanwhile, will report to the
Boise Hawks — the Cubs’ Class A short-season affiliate. Gregory will play in the New
York-Penn league, while Bour will play in
the Northwest League.
As a member of the Radford University baseball team
this spring, Alex Gregory hit .407 with 10 home runs
and 42 RBIs. He also led the Big South with his on-base
percentage of .518.
LISTED AT 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, there’s
little conjecture involved in assessing Bour.
He’s a hitter and one with power. This past
spring while earning first team All-Colonial
Athletic Association honors at Mason, Bour
hit .339 (75-for-221) with 66 RBIs.
Of his 75 hits, 14 were doubles and 17
were home runs, and his slugging percentage of .633 was third on the team. In the
history of George Mason’s program, Bour
is second in home runs and RBIs, and he’s
fourth in total bases.
In addition to his own prowess at the
plate, Bour helped author a record-setting
season this spring for the Patriots.
Historical marks for wins (42-14) and
winning percentage (.804) were both tied.
The team made its sixth NCAA tournament
appearance this season, but the Patriots
dropped its first two games to South Carolina and Binghamton.
Still, Mason’s run made an impression on
Bour, who admitted that leaving college one
year early wasn’t an easy decision to make.
“Obviously, I had a lot of good friends at

The battle for the boys’ U-15 lacrosse Northwest Blue division
began with eight teams on Saturday, June 6, but in the end it was
the Southwestern Youth Association Warriors who emerged victorious. Teams from the Northern
Virginia Youth Lacrosse League
participated in the single-elimination tournament at Wakefield High
School in Arlington. After scoring
a 4-3 win over a CYA team, the
Warriors faced off with a lacrosse
squad from Vienna. The Warriors
answered a 1-0 deficit with five
straight goals to grab a 5-1 lead at
the half. In the second half, the
Warriors scored three goals in the
third quarter and two more in the
fourth to seal the 10-2 win.

MLB Picks Bour, Gregory
From Page 16
Mason and we had a great year, but I saw
this as one of those opportunities that you
might not get again,” said Bour, whose older
brother, Jason Bour, is with the Class A
Sarasota Reds in Cincinnati’s minor league
system.
“At Mason, I wanted to be on a team that
came together, made a difference and impacted the school because obviously we had
never done something like that before,” he
said. “It was good to be a part of that.”
GREGORY’S draft day moment occurred
a bit differently than Bour’s. While Bour
found himself surrounded by a support
structure of his grandparents, parents and
his girlfriend, Gregory sat alone in front of
his computer.
Furthermore, Bour received a phone call
from Billy Swoope, a scout in the Mets’ system and someone Bour has known since his
junior year in high school, letting him know
that he would be chosen shortly. Gregory
saw his name pop-up on MLB.com’s draft
tracking program before he received his
phone call.
“I actually saw it on the computer, and I
got the phone call within a minute or two
of my name popping up,” Gregory said.
Playing at Radford and in the Big South
Conference, Gregory had yet another productive offensive season. He hit .407 to win
the conference batting title and also totaled
10 home runs and 42 RBIs. Even more impressive, Gregory led the Big South with a
.518 on-base percentage.
Gregory, who became the first player in
Radford history to hit over .400 for three
consecutive years, expressed confidence
when asked how he’d handle the task of
hitting major league pitching.
“I feel like I can hit the best pitching in
the country.
Now it’s just a matter of going out and
backing it up,” Gregory said. “I always have
to work on hitting. There are obviously new
things to learn and improve on because if
you can hit, there’ll always be a spot for
you at the next level.”
