  • West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Found Guilty of Fraud

West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry was guilty on 11 counts of mail and wire fraud, witness tampering, and lying to federal investigators, according to West Virginia MetroNews.

Of the 11 guilty charges, eight were related to mail and wire fraud charges over the use of state vehicles and state-issued purchasing cards for personal gain. One was a witness tampering charge, in which he tried to plant a false story with a court employee about the cost of his office renovation, and two charges stem from allegations that he lied to federal investigators. He will be sentenced on Jan. 16, 2019, and now has 14 days to decide whether to file a motion for a new trial.
