Mingo County commissioners are conducting interviews Monday for prosecutor and county commissioner.
The Mingo County Clerk's Office said the interviews began at 9 a.m., and the commissioners expected for the sessions to continue until about 7:30 p.m.
The commissioners are trying to fill the prosecutor's post left when Michael Sparks stepped down. Sparks was charged in a federal information with conspiracy. He's accused of participating in a scheme to protect Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum from revelations the sheriff had bought drugs from a campaign sign-maker. Assistant Prosecutor Teresa Maynard was selected to fill the job on an interim basis.
The commission post was left vacant when former commissioner David Baisden, who previously pleaded guilty in a corruption case, resigned from the commission.
