Former McDowell prosecutor Sid Bell will serve as the special prosecutor in child abuse allegations against Kanawha Prosecutor Mark Plants. Bell was appointed this week by the State Supreme Court, and will meet with State Police next week to go over their findings in the investigation. The Daily Mail reports Bell was appointed to the post Friday after the state Prosecuting Attorney's Institute declined to appoint a special prosecutor. Bell will meet March 26th with state police to discuss the case.
