Senior Victim wants to file complaint against a WV County Prosecutor

Asked over 1 year ago - Beckley, WV

They found forgery, uttering, elder financial abuse, social security fraud and several other provable charges. Criminial was arrested and released on bond.

Admitted to me and others present they did not even read the police report or even the financial audit they ordered. No communications for almost a year, then told the case was settled by diversion...I have nothing, not even trust in those who are supppose to protect us.
