Kanawha County’s prosecutor says he won’t appeal a court order removing him from office.
Mark Plants announced his decision Monday.
A three-judge panel ruled on Oct. 14 that Plants neglected his office’s duties and committed malfeasance in office. The order says Plants has been disqualified from performing a significant portion of the work he was elected to perform.
The ruling came in a petition filed by the Kanawha County Commission seeking Plants’ removal. The judges suspended the ruling for 30 days.
Plants faces charges of domestic battery involving his son and violating a domestic-violence protection order. A Kanawha County judge disqualified Plants and his staff from handling such cases in April after he was charged.
Plants says he plans to open his own law firm.
