    U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Robert Fleming, 30, intended to harm the correctional officer in the June 2014 assault.

Wheeling resident Cornelius Johnson Jr., 38, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Wheeling on charges of cocaine trafficking.

Authorities allege Johnson sold crack cocaine near Wilson Playground in Wheeling throughout October and November.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld said Johnson was indicted by the grand jury on four counts of using a telephone to facilitate the sale of crack; four counts of dealing crack within 1,000 feet of a protected location; maintaining drug-involved premises; and prohibited person possessing a firearm.

His case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Ohio Valley Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

In other cases:

Ronald Kisner II, 29, of Harpers Ferry, WV and Robert Bruno Davis, 31, of Wheeling were indicted on charges they failed to update their sex offender registrations.

* Kisner, convicted in November 2011 of abusive sexual contact, allegedly moved from West Virginia to Frederick County, Virginia without updating his sex offender registration. He is charged with failing to register, for which he faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

* Davis, convicted in 2002 of unlawful sexual conduct with minor in Ohio, moved to Wheeling in September to live with 36-year-old Angela S. Goolie, who has been charged with lying to authorities.

Davis allegedly failed to update his Ohio registration or to register in West Virginia, Ihlenfeld said. He also is alleged to have repeatedly discouraged potential witnesses from cooperating with authorities and providing information on his true living arrangements.

Davis was indicted on a charge of failing to register and update his sex offender registration and two counts of attempted witness tampering. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.

Goolie, charged with making a false statement to police, faces up to five years in prison and a fine of as much as $250,000.
