CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A former Mingo County magistrate will be in U.S. District Court in Charleston on Monday afternoon to be sentenced for voter fraud.
Dallas Toler, 45, plead guilty in December to knowingly registering a convicted felon to vote in 2012. Toler’s sentencing was scheduled for 2 p.m. He faces up to five years in federal prison, but has requested probation.
In February, Toler’s bond was revoked after he allegedly violated his probation by selling cocaine to an informant. He’s been held in the South Central Regional Jail since then.
Toler was one of four former Mingo County elected officials charged as part of a larger corruption investigation.
He was part of “Team Mingo” — a slate of Democratic candidates seeking election in 2012 — along with former Mingo County Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury, former Mingo County Commissioner David Baisden and former Prosecuting Attorney Michael Sparks.
