No Word Yet on Plants' Job Status
Kanawha County commissioners need more information before deciding what to do at the Prosecutor's Office. The Charleston Gazette reports commissioners will wait until the case is resolved to decide whether Plants may be asked to step aside, and said they have not discussed a petition for his removal. West Virginia State Police arrested Plants this week for allegedly violating a protective order granted to his ex-wife last month after she accused him of child abuse. Plants said he found his sons in an unattended vehicle outside a local pharmacy and stayed with them until his ex-wife, Allison Plants, came out of the pharmacy, and that's what led to his arrest.
