CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Documents show that, before recently resigned Delegate Ron Walters, R-Kanawha, struck a deal with a county prosecutor to withdraw an allegedly falsified lien on a double-wide trailer, he deeded the property to a woman for $1.
Walters resigned Wednesday after signing an agreement with Kanawha County Prosecuting Attorney Chuck Miller to remove the lien, resign from office immediately, take his name off the May 2018 primary ballot and never run for office again.
The lien was filed against the property of Nattily Michelle Blevins, in Fort Gay.
Documents filed with Wayne County Circuit Court, submitted when Blevins fought a legal battle with a neighbor over a property dispute, show that Walters deeded the property to Blevins at a cost of $1 in cash in October 2015.
