MERCER COUNTY MAGISTRATE
Bench veteran selected to succeed retiring Mercer County magistrate

Reported by: Associated Press
Thursday, February 20, 2014 2:31 AM EST
PRINCETON, W.Va.


Starting Feb. 28, a new magistrate will take the bench in Princeton.

Charles N. Poe has been named by Mercer County Chief Judge Derek Swope to succeed Magistrate Richard D. Fowler, who is retiring. Poe is no stranger to bench, having served in Bluefield in his previous term.

Poe lost his bid for re-election in 2012. He was the unanimous choice of three circuit judges in Mercer County. Poe called his selection "like being born again" after falling short in the 2012 election.

He'll be sworn in on Feb. 28. He'll sit on the Princeton bench until the general election in 2016.
