Clay County Sheriff Miles J. “Mike” Slack, charged previously with illegal wiretapping, has submitted his resignation.
Slack's resignation is effective Monday. There is an emergency county commission meeting to discuss the matter at 10 a.m. Monday.
Slack's illegal wiretapping charge is a federal felony that can carry up to five years in prison, the U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin’s Office has said.
In a criminal case filed in early August, Goodwin charged Slack with surreptitiously installing a keystroke logger on a computer belonging to the West Virginia Supreme Court.
According to court documents, the compromised computer was a government computer assigned to Slack’s then wife, identified as “Victim L.S.,” who works in the office of a Clay County magistrate. Computers in the offices of circuit judges and magistrates throughout West Virginia are owned and maintained by the state Supreme Court and are connected to a central Supreme Court computer network.
