CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A former Mingo County magistrate is in jail after allegedly trying to sell drugs in his county while out on bond awaiting sentencing in a federal criminal case.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Tuesday Dallas Toler, 45, was arrested Monday night for allegedly selling cocaine.
Toler pleaded guilty Dec. 2, 2013, to obtaining a false voter registration application.
Goodwin’s motion said Toler took $850 from an informant Jan. 3 who promised to share drug profits with him.
Toler is currently scheduled to be sentenced on the previous federal conviction March 10.
