LURAY, Dec. 7 — A Page County grand jury issued 25 indictments against a Luray man on Wednesday in Page County Circuit Court.

The charges against David Howard Wright II include a Class 3 felony for poisoning someone, as well as 24 Class 1 misdemeanors for filming a non-consenting nude person (14 counts) and then distributing those images (10 counts).

The alleged offenses occurred on June 12, 2022, according to the court records.

Wright was charged and arrested on Sept. 19, 2022.

Members of Wednesday’s grand jury believed the evidence presented merited taking the charges against Wright forward in circuit court and therefore delivered a “true bill.”

Wright is scheduled to appear in court again at 9 a.m. on February 15, 2023.

On Dec. 7, the Page County grand jury handed down a total of 94 indictments against 40 individuals.

The remainder of those charges will be published next week.
