UPDATE 8/18/12 @ 5:45 p.m.

CHARLESTON, W. Va. (WSAZ) – At an open meeting on Saturday, John Jarman was selected by Kanawha County’s Republican Executive Committee to replace Carol Fouty, the embattled former magistrate who resigned last month after being accused of playing favorites and violating the judicial code of conduct.

That means there are once again four Republican candidates on the November Ballot for a Kanawha County magistrate seat.

Two of the other three candidates were at the meeting and had some reservations.

"It's possible that adding one more person will divide votes. Honestly, though, the whole reason I'm doing this I want to have a better magistrate court system," magistrate candidate Dianna Graves said.

"At first I was concerned that, you know, some of us have been out there working for eight months and now all the sudden it's possible somebody could kind of limbo in at the last minute. But after talking to people, and what's done it done, and I can have no choice but to support the party," magistrate candidate Mike Sisson said.

The executive committee wanted to make sure the voters had their choice of as many qualified candidates as possible.

"If we would have allowed Carol Fouty to remain on the ballot, where she would not be able to serve, that would have skewed the results. So you would have had somebody getting votes that couldn't serve which means the actual people that could serve -- their vote count wouldn't be considered accurate" Tim Morris of the Kanawha County Republican Executive Committee said.

The newly chosen candidate agrees.

"To help out the Republican Party, to help out Kanawha County, to bring a sense of integrity and honor back to the magistrate's office -- I think it's a brilliant idea, a brilliant opportunity," magistrate candidate John Jarman said.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A former Kanawha County Magistrate is off the November ballot.

The Secretary of State's Office ruled Wednesday Carol Fouty's name could be removed from the ballot and the Republican party can pick a replacement candidate.

Fouty resigned recently after allegations of playing favorites and violating the judicial code of conduct.

The Kanawha County Republican Executive Committee will meet at 11 a.m. on Saturday to pick a replacement for Fouty.

The deadline to name her replacement is Monday.

The Judicial Hearing Board recommended this week that the Kanawha County Prosecutor conduct an investigation into whether Fouty broke any criminal laws.



UPDATE 8/13/12 @ 3 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The Judicial Hearing Board has accepted an agreement involving a former Kanawha County Magistrate accused of ethics violations.

The case against Carol Fouty was presented to the board last week.

Under the agreement, Fouty agreed to resign, not run for office for four years and pay nearly $6,400 as part of a settlement. Fouty was accused of five violations, but the agreement drops four of them.

Fouty is accused of playing favorites and violating the Judicial Code of Conduct that included a woman arrested on a drug charge who later worked for Fouty.

In the order released Monday, the board recommends the Kanawha County Prosecutor to conduct an investigation into whether any criminal laws may have been violated.

The case now goes to the State Supreme Court for a final decision.

Fouty resigned last month citing health problems as her reason for stepping down.

UPDATE 8/8/12 @ 7:10 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A former Kanawha County magistrate accused of ethics violations has agreed to step down and pay up.

Carol Fouty has been on the bench for 26 years, but resigned Friday as part of a settlement agreement.

The Judicial Hearing Board heard her case Wednesday morning at the state Capitol in Charleston. Fouty was not present, and her lawyer represented her there.

A pile of paperwork was submitted on behalf of the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, accusing Fouty of violating the Judicial Code of Conduct.

Fouty told WSAZ.com in an exclusive interview Monday that she did some things wrong.

The details of the settlement include her resignation, agreeing to not run for office for four years and paying nearly $6,400 in court costs.

"For years and years she showed herself to be an excellent public servant," Supreme Court Administrator Steve Canterbury said. "But she made some really, really serious errors of judgment, and there were issues of faith and trust and clearly the ethics have to be followed."

Fouty was under investigation earlier this year after she allegedly played favorites with some of those who appeared before her in court.

That included the case of Melea Fisher; Fouty dismissed her drug charge and then later hired Fisher to work for her.

"I did it, shouldn't have but it's not like it doesn't happen often," Fouty said.

Fisher was later caught driving Fouty's car while under the influence and arrested again.

In the agreement, Fouty is only facing one violation; the other four have been dropped.

"They dropped them because they didn't have enough evidence, I suppose," Fouty said. "People will think what they want to think. They will say what they want to say."

Fouty cited health concerns in her resignation letter.

The maximum penalty that could be imposed would be a five year suspension without pay. That's essentially what has been agreed to, though.

"It's the right thing," Canterbury said. "It saves us a number of days of argument and a little bit of money. And it comes out in the wash."

Fouty is still eligible for full retirement even if she is disciplined, which figures out to roughly $26,000 a year, according to court officials.

It's not up to the Judicial Hearing Board to accept or reject the agreement. It will then be passed on to the state Supreme Court for a final decision.

UPDATE 8/6/12 @ 5 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A former Kanawha Magistrate sat down exclusively with WSAZ.com Monday to talk about why she decided to resign from public office.

Carol Fouty submitted a letter of resignation to the Supreme Court on Friday, just days before she's scheduled to appear in front of the Judicial Hearing Board.

"I'm sick and tired of it, you know, I'm tired of the BS. I'm tired of all the lies, and so they can have it and I feel so, so much better," Fouty said.  "I haven't killed anybody, haven't stolen anything, haven't stolen any money from the court, as a matter of fact I went eight years without even getting a vacation."

Fouty is accused of showing favoritism in certain cases while serving as magistrate.

"I was devastated, I never in my life had anyone to talk about me so badly," Fouty said.  "People will think what they want to think, they will say what they want to say."

Fouty cited health concerns as her reason for resigning. She also stated she wanted to spend more time with her family.

During the exclusive interview, Fouty admitted she did something wrong, she even said she takes full responsibility for dismissing a woman's ticket.

"I did it, shouldn't have but it's not like it doesn't happen often, hasn't happened before, it's going to continue to happen, it's been happening for years so I don't know," Fouty said.

"For years she served well, but these were significant admirations and bad, bad ethical acts, and they needed investigating. And unfortunately she needed to answer to them, and that's essentially what's transpired here," Steve Canterbury, West Virginia Supreme Court Administrator said.  "It's pretty clear to me that she's got a plea agreement on the table."

Fouty also said in her resignation letter that she will not run for re-election this fall.

"It seemed inevitable that she would come to some of the same conclusions that everyone else was reaching," Canterbury said. "Likely her resignation is based upon certain considerations ... that she will undoubtedly find herself agreeing to some of the charges and probably some of the charges will be dropped."

Fouty says several charges were dropped in her case. She says it's because the court didn't have enough evidence against her.

Fouty's hearing is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Fouty’s replacement, Kristen Vieweg was sworn in Monday afternoon.

Vieweg has been Fouty's assistant for the past five years.
    
She says this all comes as a big surprise.

"It was an honor working with Carol. I was Carol's assistant, and it was an honor working with her, and I wish her the best and, as I said in my oath, I plan to follow the laws of the state of West Virginia and the Constitution," Vieweg said.

UPDATE 6/6/12 @ 12:05 p.m.
KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The case of misconduct surrounding a Kanawha County magistrate continues to make its way through the West Virginia Supreme Court.

Magistrate Carol Fouty was suspended without pay in April. The question on the table Wednesday was whether she should continue not getting that paycheck.

Fouty’s attorney, Michael J. Del Giudice, argued that she hasn't been indicted, has no criminal charges pending and none of the five charges she is facing have been proven.

However, the judicial investigation commission argues that those charges are serious, and that Fouty should remain suspended without pay.

Fouty is accused of misconduct for mishandling several cases in magistrate court.

The five charges focus on allegations of relationships with people who appeared before her on various charges.

The Supreme Court says she also mishandled bonds and warrants in a number of cases.

UPDATE 4/10/12 @ 6:35 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Charges have been served on a Kanawha County Magistrate who was suspended Monday without pay.

Longtime Magistrate Carol Fouty was charged Tuesday in connection with a judicial ethics investigation.

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals filed an order Monday stating there is probable cause to believe Magistrate Fouty has engaged, or is currently engaged, in a serious violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct.

On Tuesday, the West Virginia Judicial Hearing Board formally charged Carol Fouty on five different counts of inappropriate conduct with defendants, persons posting bond for defendants and inappropriately following the rules of the court.

The formal statement of charges, which is 20 pages in length, describes several instances in which Fouty allegedly violated the Code of Judicial Conduct.

The statement alleges Fouty dismissed charges against a woman who had been charged with possession without the consent of the sheriff's department or prosecutor's office.

That woman then began to do work for Fouty at her home in exchange for getting paid $10 an hour. On a later occasion, the woman was driving Fouty's car and was charged with first-offense DUI and two counts of simple possession. The statement alleges that Fouty called the magistrate on duty and tried to have the woman let go on a personal recognizance bond.

Another instance described in the statement deals with Fouty allegedly offering work to a man whom she had just arraigned on stolen property charges. According to the statement, the man told Fouty he could not afford a lawyer, and Fouty offered to hire him to do some concrete work around her home to earn money.

Count number three in the statement alleges that Fouty was a personal friend of a bail bondsman. According to the statement, the bondsman would ask Fouty on occasion to lower the bond of defendants in which he has posted their bond.

On several occasions, the bondsman would bring defendants to Fouty's home to do work in order to pay off the money they owed to the bondsman.

One of the defendants in the statement told investigators a completely different story about the work he did at Fouty's home. According to the statement, the defendant said he owed the bondsman several thousand dollars in back rent and was working at Fouty's home to pay off his debt. He informed investigators that he didn't personally know Fouty, but had heard her name from the bondsman on several occasions.

Count four goes into the Justification of Surety.In the documents it says the use of bail bondsmen in Kanawha County is outlawed unless they have been pre-approved by the Chief Judge and agree to associate as equal partners with the other qualified bondsmen in Kanawha County Circuit Court Monitored and Regulated Bonding Business Partnership.

The charges say in at least five cases in 2011, Fouty failed to obtain the required justification of surety (having sufficient legal reason). The charge then goes on to name the cases where she failed to comply with the code.

Count five discusses the warrant recalls. The charge says a magistrate may not recall a previously issued arrest warrant without the authorization of the prosecuting attorney. The charge also goes on to say a bailiff can execute a warrant on defendants who voluntarily appear to answer the charge.

However, Fouty has never had a bailiff execute a warrant. Instead, she goes through the initial appearance and then recalls the warrant without notice to or authorization from the prosecutor. The charge states that during an eight-month period in 2011 there were 27 cases that had warrant recalls. Fouty handled 24 of them. In 17 of the cases, Fouty gave the defendant a personal recognizance bond. In five of the cases Fouty required surety bonds from Mr. Wright in each of those cases.

On Monday, Fouty was suspended without pay after the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals found probable cause she had violated the judicial code of ethics.

"It's difficult anytime you are talking about an elected official because you are talking about public trust," Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants said. "It's very important that the public have faith in its judicial system. I think that's really the hard part about this whole ordeal."

Kanawha County Chief Judge Duke Bloom appointed senior status Magistrate Brenda Chapman to fill in for Fouty while the case is pending. Chapman is a former Cabell County judge who retired in 2007.

Neither prosecutors nor police have confirmed a criminal investigation is ongoing.

Fouty has 30 days to file an official response to the statement of charges.

UPDATE 4/9/12 @ 3:30 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Kanawha County Magistrate Carol Fouty has been suspended without pay following a complaint filed by the administrative director of the courts.

The West Virginia State Supreme Court of Appeals filed an order Monday stating there is probable cause to believe Magistrate Fouty has engaged, or is currently engaged, in a serious violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct.

The Court also noted that Fouty received a written admonishment in December, 2011, for violating the code.

Court administrator Steve Canterbury tells WSAZ.com Fouty was hand delivered the order by court marshal. He says she handled the matter professionally.

Magistrate Fouty was suspended without pay and is prohibited from hearing any civil or criminal cases or performing any judicial functions, pending this matter.

Fouty has not yet been formally charged but that is expected to happen in the next couple of days.

Canterbury says if Fouty wants a hearing on her suspension, she must ask for it within 30 days.

The Supreme Court has remanded the case against Fouty to the Judicial Investigation Commission for the filing of formal charges

UPDATE 3/28/12 @ 5:45 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A woman that deals daily with the law is now facing it on the flip-side.

In the past month, Kanawha County Magistrate Carol Fouty has been in the headlines after someone who works for her was found driving her car while on drugs.

A complaint was filed against Fouty early in March with the West Virginia Judicial Investigation Commission.

"I filed what is known as an extraordinary complaint against Magistrate Fouty based upon what I'd seen in the news," State Supreme Court Administrator Steve Canterbury said.

It is in Canterbury's job description to look into cases like this one. Canterbury says he filed the complaint after the woman who cleans for Fouty was arrested after driving her car.

"I don't prejudge, but having seen those things it was clear to me that there were certain potential violations of the judicial cannon of ethics," Canterbury said. "The fear was there could have been a violation or a misrepresentation of Magistrate Fouty. In either case we wanted to make sure that we got to the bottom of it."

An investigation by the judicial investigation commission is now underway.

"Because it was an extraordinary complaint, they file a report with the chief justice of the Supreme Court. At that time, the court may decide that they should suspend the magistrate with or without pay pending the outcome of the investigation," Canterbury said.

Questions of a criminal investigation are circling. Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants will neither confirm nor deny that. Charleston's police chief also isn't commenting.

One thing for sure is Canterbury doesn’t file complaints like this often.

"It's pretty rare," he said. "Since July 1, 2005, when I took the job, I think this is the fourth one I've filed.”

Canterbury confirmed Fouty is still working with pay as a magistrate in Kanawha County.

However, courthouse workers say she does plan to be out the rest of the week.

By the end of next week, Canterbury believes the judicial investigation commission will file a report with the West Virginia Supreme Court. The court will then respond to the findings.



UPDATE 3/27/12 @ 6:30 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Kanawha County magistrate judge is under the microscope after several incidents during the past few months.

Magistrate Carol Fouty is accused of letting a man under the influence of drugs out of the courthouse and back to his car Monday.

Fouty was in the spotlight in February after her maid was found driving her car while under the influence. Drugs also were found in her purse.

Bobby Sisk is the man accused of driving under the influence of prescription medication -- not once but twice Monday.

“Officer Lightner pulled us over," Sisk said. "He said we were swerving. We weren't swerving."

First, he was taken in front of Fouty and released on a personal recognizance bond without a sober driver nearby.

“The first judge, she knew I was OK, so she said I was fine to drive. She marked it out on a piece of paper, said it was fine to drive," Sisk said.

WSAZ.com found the criminal complaint, signed by Carol Fouty, that clearly shows section eight had been marked out.

"I think she's awesome, I really do," Sisk said. "Now, the police officer seemed to have some animosity against her. That's the reason why he came down and arrested me a second time, I think."

A few hours later, the instructions by Magistrate Kim Aaron were clear. Sisk was not to operate a motor vehicle.

WSAZ.com has confirmed West Virginia State Supreme Court Administrator Steve Canterbury filed a judicial complaint against Fouty early in March, after the story of her maid hit the headlines. Now a judicial investigation is underway.

Fouty could not be reached for comment on Tuesday. Another Kanawha County Magistrate says she had become ill and would be out the rest of the week.

Sisk is in jail on a $5,000 bond.

WSAZ.com also tried to speak with Lightner, but was unable to get in touch with him.



UPDATE 3/27/12 @ 9:10 a.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A Kanawha County magistrate is the target of a complaint that asks a state panel to investigate allegations she dismissed cases in exchange for defendants doing favors for her.

West Virginia Supreme Court administrator Steve Canterbury tells media outlets that he filed the complaint with the Judicial Investigation Commission after seeing news reports of the allegations.

Fouty declined to comment.

In March, police charged Fouty's maid with driving under the influence. The woman was driving Fouty's car at the time. Fouty had hired the woman after she dismissed a drug charge against her.

UPDATE 3/02/12 @ 6 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A WSAZ investigation highlights several ethical violations in a Kanawha County Magistrate’s past.

Earlier this week an employee was charged with DUI while driving Kanawha County Magistrate Carol Fouty's car. Previous citations against the same woman were dismissed.

WSAZ.com found Fouty also has had three ethical complaints filed against her where she was admonished or censored.

"No one is above the law," Fouty told WSAZ on Wednesday.

The first complaint stems back to December 1999 when Fouty was accused of making a racial slur on the job. That complaint made it all the way to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Magistrate Fouty was censured and fined.

WSAZ records show the prosecutor at that time attempted to stop Fouty from hearing criminal cases, saying she can not be fair.

"Have you done anything wrong,” WSAZ’s Sarah Sager asked Magistrate Fouty Wednesday. “Not that I know of," Fouty said.

Since that time two more complaints have made it to the Judicial Investigation Commission of West Virginia. One complaint dates back to 2004 where Fouty is said to have been advertising her services as a public notary; and for issuing a protective order, from her home, to her neighbor, who was also her tenant.

The latest complaint happened in 2009 when Fouty is said to have issued and helped write a peace bond for a friend.

The magistrate was reprimanded by letter for both complaints

Now: she's forced to stay within the rules.

"I can't comment on any specific cases," Prosecutor Mark Plants told WSAZ.com

If there's evidence she's recently violated ethical rules the case would immediately head to the WV Supreme Court.

"We need to have a level playing field here in Kanawha County,” Plants said.

Judge Bloom told WSAZ.com because of the allegations he's reminded all magistrates charges cannot be dismissed unless a prosecutor is present.

Melea Fisher, the woman charged with DUI while driving Magistrate Fouty’s car, was released from Jail Thursday.



ORIGINAL STORY 2/29/12
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A worker for a Kanawha County Magistrate judge was caught allegedly driving under the influence while driving the magistrate’s car.

Melea Fisher was arrested Monday by Charleston Police for allegedly driving under the influence, as well as on two counts of simple possession while driving Magistrate Carol Fouty’s car and running errands for her.

"When she left my house, she was fine," Fouty said. "She was gone for two hours, so I called her. I asked her what was taking so long you just have to run to Foodland.”

When police pulled Fisher over, she had been driving on the wrong side of the road. She failed three sobriety tests and admitted to taking drugs that weren't prescribed to her. Marijuana was also found in her purse.

"The next thing I knew, they told me she had drugs on her. I said, 'No. I trusted her not only with my car, but my checkbook, debit card, she'd gone to the store before,' " Fouty said.

This wasn't the first time Fisher was cited for simple possession.

"The public record shows Ms. Fisher was written up and issued a citation for simple possession in December of last year. That case was dismissed," Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants said.

Plants says Fouty also saw the case.

"She had a ticket, but I didn't even recognize her when she came in here on her ticket," Fouty said.

It's a situation where Fouty says she has done no wrong.

"I was so, so disappointed. I really was. It broke my heart to think that she would, you know, I trusted her," Fouty said.

Plants could not confirm or deny if there was an ongoing investigation into Fouty and Fisher.

Fisher’s bond was set at $5,000.
