Former Democrat Team Mingo Member set to Plead Guilty


CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Former Mingo County Prosecutor Michael Sparks will appear before a federal judge Monday to plead guilty to a criminal charge.

Sparks resigned from the office last month after he was indicted on a charge of violating a man’s constitutional rights. According to the court filing, Sparks participated in a conspiracy with other Mingo County officials to thwart a federal investigation into late Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum.
