CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — An Ohio man will serve additional time behind bars for a carjacking that ended when he slammed into a car killing a Marion County couple.
Ryan Hubbs, 38, was sentenced Tuesday to spend just more than 10 years (124 months) in federal prison for carjacking. He pleaded guilty to the federal charge in January. The sentence will run concurrently with a 10-18 year state prison sentence after a conviction on second-degree robbery.
Hubbs, of Paris, Ohio, robbed a woman during a carjacking in a Lewis County parking lot in October 2016. He drove her car north on Interstate 79 and about two hours later caused a crash in White Hall. that claimed the lives of David Glasscock, 64, and his wife, Sandra, 65. Hobbs was charged with robbery in Lewis County and two counts of murder in Marion County.
Hubbs pleaded guilty to second degree robbery in October 2017 in Lewis County and was sentenced to 10-18 years in prison. A Marion County judge dismissed the murder charges in Marion County calling it double jeopardy since Hubbs had already been convicted on the underlying offense. The state Supreme Court upheld the decision.
A projected release date for Hubbs under the state sentence for the Lewis County robbery conviction is October 13, 2025. His ultimate release date will be determined by how much “good time” he can accumulate while serving since federal sentencing guidelines require the federal sentence to be served at the same time as the state sentence.
Hubbs is being held in the Huttonsville Correctional Center.
