Justice Allen H. Loughry II, West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, has been suspended from the bench without pay.

One of West Virginia’s five state Supreme Court justices, Allen Loughry II, faces criminal fraud and witness tampering charges after federal prosecutors accused him of misusing a government vehicle for personal trips and improperly taking a historic desk from a government building to his home office.

A federal grand jury charged Loughry with 22 counts of fraud, false statements and witness tampering offenses, according to an indictment unsealed on Wednesday. Loughry, 47, was elected to a 12-year term on the state’s high court in 2012 and served as chief justice from January 2017 until his removal from that leadership role in February 2018.
