CHARLESTON, W.Va. — An employee of the state’s Supreme Court of Appeals secretly recorded a meeting with Justice Allen Loughry and others because she was afraid she would lose her job.
That employee, Kim Ellis, testified Friday afternoon as the federal criminal trial of Loughry, who is suspended from the court, finished its first week.
Loughry is facing a 22-count federal indictment, and most of those are for wire and mail fraud. The fraud relates to his alleged use of state-owned vehicles for personal use and his alleged use of state money to pay for gas for those trips, among other things.
