Plants and his entire senior staff need to go. The cover up is as bad as the scandal. Shame on his chiefs of staff. You're all tainted now. The citizens to impeach mark plants fb page has exposed you all. It reeks. Have you illegally obtained my IP address yet? I'm waiting to catch wind of it so that I may testify against you all at the ODC and in federal court. It's time that the dignity be restored in the Kanawha County Prosecutors Office. Handcuffs may be coming for all of you soon

Hundreds of posts from a myriad of people have been removed, including several I posted. Topix did not remove these without prompting (perhaps by the Prosecutor or someone in his office). In the Courthouse, it's common to hear prosecutors state that, "only a guilty man flees." Why in the world would an innocent/wrongfully accused public official technologically "flee" from legitimate inquires and discourse on Topix by having Topix remove them?
If "only a guilty man flees" why did Ms. Plants deactivate her Facebook account, yet Mr. Plants did not? Hmmm..... You seem to speak like an attorney - you should know that Mr Plants has no power over Topix, just as an innocent citizen has no power of persuasion in having someone's income changed, say a partner at a law firm?

Don't understand most of your reply. Not being snarky, just don't understand it. With respect to the portion I do understand, I was talking about the solicited removal of topix posts that did not violate the terms of service. I believe that law enforcement may push topix to remove posts. My point was that prompting topix to remove non-offensive posts makes The prosecutor appear to be guilty of the matters discussed here in these threads. I don't understand the Facebook analogy, the income change statement or the partner in a law firm reference. Happy to address them if you will explain what you mean.

The public trashing of both the former and current Mrs. Plants are way, way out of bounds and, quite frankly, distract from the real issue. In my mind, that issue is whether the prosecutor lawfully whipped his child with a belt or unlawfully abused his child with a belt. The state police investigator is reputed to be experienced and thorough. No doubt, he has interviewed the son and Mr. Plants and any other witnesses. He has viewed any injuries (e.g., bruising) and any photographic evidence of the same. I would not be surprised if Mr. Plants is charged with a misdemeanor or felony. Of course he is entitled to mount a zealous defense to those charges. However, this situation (one that cannot possibly be "politically motivated" as Mr. Plants suggests because there is not political race in play) is compounded by the concurrent scandal involving Mr. Plant's judgment in having an affair with his secretary, conceiving a child with that secretary during their marriage to other people, hiding the fact that he was the father, appearing to favor his mistress with wage increases and fixed traffic citations, and replacing his mistress (now wife) with her brother. All of this creates a veritable circus surrounding the prosecutor's office. Such a situation severely undermines that public confidence in the institution and will hamstring the office's ability to conduct its important business for the public. In short, if he's charged, I believe he should resign immediately.

And I believe that this is the hearing on the Domestic Violence Petition. The ciminal investigation is separate, although it is proceeding on a parallel track.

The Plants either Mark or Sarah filed a complaint with Facebook stating there was Hate Speech on the page. Which is a lie. We had to appeal the un-publishing . We are back and up again so come by and share the page . Thank you for inquiring
