On the same day that West Virginia’s current chief Supreme Court justice successfully beat back an impeachment attempt, her predecessor was found guilty by a federal jury of misusing state vehicles and credit cards, witness tampering and making false statements.

Now-suspended West Virginia Justice Allen Loughry II was found guilty Oct. 12 on 11 of 22 counts in a federal indictment made public in June. The guilty verdicts came on seven counts of wire fraud; two counts of making false statements to federal investigators; one count of mail fraud; and one count of witness tampering. Loughry was found not guilty on 10 other counts, while the jury deadlocked on one count of mail fraud stemming from allegations that Loughry misused a government car and credit card.
