A former Mingo County magistrate awaiting sentencing on a federal vote charge is back in jail.
A motion filed Monday by Goodwin's office seeks the revocation of Toler's bond. It alleges that Toler has been involved in distributing cocaine while out on bond awaiting sentencing.
Toler pleaded guilty on Dec. 2, 2013, to federal charges that he illegally registered a convicted felon to vote in the 2012 primary election. His sentencing on that charge is set for March 10.
Toler's lawyer in the vote case, Joseph M. Farrell Jr., didn't immediately return a telephone message Tuesday.
Toler was being held Tuesday at the South Central Regional Jail in Charleston.
