It's not "the lady who writes down what he says." That would be the court reporter. This was his secretary. She answers the phone, arranges hearings, types up letters, etc.

Yes,indeed "Where's My Cane," What about Big D. threatening a helpless elderly lady,see she's not the only one he's threatened as well,He has threatened many other's. Other's who knew they would pay hell if they told the law.Violation's of a person's civil liberties. Violations of the Law.Maybe if the Feds would seize the Courthouse and the State,County,and City PD's citizens will come forward and stand for Liberty,Justice,Equality, and Freedom for all. See I fought for our Country,our State,our County,our Community,our Fallen Brothers and Sisters.All gave some ,some gave all.For us to stand idly by and allow this corruption to continue by what a few nasty,dirty,low down scum put together as TEAM who??? Not my Mingo!!!! U aren't on my Team,see my Team are the good,decent,GOD FEARING folks of Mingo County. Go back 10 years check full record from the County and cross reference them with six individual people,All of whom sit in Office today and then you will be able to find the loose ends to tie up.Proofs in the financial trails,transactions,Bid packets, cash exchanges.Can't hide what you think is already hidden. Shame on you!!! May God have mercy on your souls. Remember John 3:16!!!! Judge not lest ye be Judged!

If even half of it is true he will not have a law license much longer. The state bar will have no problem seeing to it.

A Mingo County judge facing federal charges also faces a complaint by the West Virginia Supreme Court's administrator.

The Supreme Court said administrative director Steve Canterbury filed the complaint against Circuit Court Judge Michael Thornsbury with the Judicial Investigation Commission on Thursday after the court learned of the indictment.

The Supreme Court could suspend Thornsbury with or without pay if probable cause is found that he violated the Code of Judicial Conduct or is unable or unwilling to perform his official duties.

The court also said in a news release that Senior Status Judge John Cummings has agreed to serve in Mingo County. Senior Status Supreme Court Justice Thomas McHugh would assist as needed.

An attorney said the Mingo County couple at the center of a criminal indictment against Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury is shocked, scared and seeing their lives turned upside-down.

Thornsbury was indicted on federal conspiracy charges Thursday after what prosecutors say was a five-year attempt to frame Robert Woodruff. They say Thornsbury wanted to eliminate him as a romantic rival after Kim Woodruff tried to break off an affair with the judge. Kim Woodruff was Thornsbury's secretary.

Charleston attorney Mike Callaghan represents the Woodruffs, who plan to sue Thornsbury.

Prosecutors said Thornsbury tried to frame Robert Woodruff for assault, larceny and drug possession.

Callaghan represented Robert Woodruff in court on the claims, which he called suspicious. But he says he was shocked to learn Thornsbury was behind the charges.

I don t think anyone is blaming there famalies.I do however think they should step forward and let out some of those sins they have seen.But that is between them,God and The FBI.I do think most decent people won t involve their family but they also need to remember that these people that got railroaded had family and it was local people also.So when you lay your heads down tonight?Please say a prayer for all of the loved ones and help them all find some peace.It s gonna take a lot for them to heal.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said none of the men accused of helping Thornsbury in his "campaign to persecute" Robert Woodruff will be charged. However, "the investigation into Mingo County corruption is ongoing," he said.

And, these men have wreaked havoc on the citizens of our county for a very long time. They are elected officials! One was hiding behind his judicial robes, for crying out loud! There should be vociferous cries of protest and outrage! My only prayer is that they go after ALL of them, including the recent brown-nosing appointees and anyone else that sat daily at the "crooks" table in Starters.
