Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants says he's waiting for all the details before taking any action. Plants says a prosecutor from another county will be assigned to handle the case, and, if he is found guilty, he will be prosecuted just like anyone else. Reynolds was appointed to the position in 2007.
