Mercer Co. magistrate leaves note saying he's retiring

Posted:

PRINCETON, W. Va (WVVA)-- Mercer County magistrate Rick Fowler is retiring.

This confirmed by a note left in magistrate offices.

It reads, "Do not change lock until February 28th... I have to get my things. Retiring-- not resigning."

Last September he was investigated for allegedly showing favoritism to some suspects and defendants.

Fowler is the chief magistrate in Mercer County and until he is replaced, those remaining will need to cover his cases and night duties.
