The West Virginia Supreme Court has suspended a former Randolph County prosecutor's law license for three years for misconduct during his tenure in office.
The court says Busch ignored the defense's request for documents in one case and obstructed the defense's access to an alleged victim's recorded statements in the other case. He also gave false statements to the circuit court in both cases regarding the whereabouts of the evidence.
Busch had suggested a lesser suspension. He contended that his conduct was negligible but not intentional.
