Clay County Sheriff Faces Wiretapping Charges

The Clay County Sheriff is facing charges for putting a monitoring device on his ex-wife's work computer. Federal prosecutors are charging Clay County Sheriff Miles "Mike" J. Slack with illegal wiretapping, and say the device was likely installed in late April. A news release says a keystroke logging device can intercept everything typed on the keyboard, and also says the computer was owned and maintained by the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia and is connected to a central Supreme Court network. No hearing date has been set.
