Beckley mayor's ethic charges hearing continued

Monday's hearing for Beckley Mayor Emmett Pugh about the ethics charges against him has been continued.

Joan Parker, Executive Director of the West Virginia Ethics Commission says a one month continuance was granted so both sides can work out a settlement regarding the mayor's ethics charges.

Parker says if an agreement is reached it will be presented at the West Virginia Ethics Commission's June meeting.

If no deal is reached, a hearing date will be set.

Mayor Pugh is accused of using his position and office for his own private financial gain.
