UPDATE: Army Recruiter Under Investigation For Reported Misconduct with Students


PRINCETON (WVVA) -- An Army recruiter out of the Beckley detachment is under investigation.

A representative with the U.S. Army confirms Sgt. Richard Parsons has been removed from recruiting duties following reported misconduct at Princeton High School.

Officials said Wednesday the investigation stems from allegations made by several students at the school.

On Thursday, First Sgt. Michael Baylous with the West Virginia State Police told WVVA News that the complaint against Parsons stems from an alleged "inappropriate relationship with a juvenile."

Baylous said the investigation is in the preliminary stages, but that the case could be handed over to the Princeton Police Department.

Army representatives said Parsons is still on staff, but will have no further contact with the public until the investigation is complete.

State police are handling the investigation.
