The 5-0 decision came a day after Sparks resigned from his post as he faced a federal investigation for allegedly covering up a local Sheriff Eugene Crum's prescription drug use.

Maybe it's just my small town upbringing, but this seems like something I'd not be too worked up about.

I'm taking an educated guess that we're talking about Oxycodone, aka Hillbilly Heroin and the Sheriff was obtaining it illegally.

Yes, it's bad, but in the grand scheme of things, I'd value a longtime friendship over "doing the right thing".

In the movie  Riding in Cars with Boys,Drew Barrymore's father (the town police chief) covers for her heroin-addicted husband out of loyalty to his daughter and on the promise that the son-in-law turns his life around.

Tossing the sheriff to the dogs just ruins the man's life. What good is a friendship if not for mutual support, even when one is doing wrong?

The sheriff was murdered, so I guess the good friendship is gone, too.

Not the women.

At first I was shocked the idea of a rookie getting his own county, but then again it is Cleveland, OH, it won't take much for Mingo to get his own county.  Cuyahoga sounds like a silly name anyways.

A lot would depend on whether the sheriff and prosecutor behaved. If they decided that drugs, or even certain drugs, were de facto decriminalized I'd have a better opinion of them than if they were doing what I'm pretty sure they were doing.

I'm proud to have West Virginia as an ancestral homeland -- it's the only state that's completely within Appalachia -- but I'm glad my grandfather decided to move away. Even if he was run out of the state for things we don't mention in public. WV's good for making its neighboring states look better, at least.

To quote Wikipedia, "Riding in Cars with Boys is a 2001 film based on the autobiography of the same name by Beverly Donofrio about a woman who overcame difficulties, including being a teen mother, and who later earned a master's degree."
 

Oh. "Overcoming difficulties" stories are my least favorite kind. I much prefer tales that end like Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry. You know, just like real life.

Apparently Sheriff Crum was involved in the drug trade, and the judge and prosecutor were covering up for him. The sheriff was shot and killed in April while eating lunch in his car by a man he'd allegedly molested when the guy was a teen (this didn't come out til August). His widow was appointed sheriff. Then she resigned because she "hadn't had time to properly grieve" or more likely because info was coming out that Crum was in fact a drug dealer. Prosecutor (of the guy who shot Crum) stepped down because of a conflict of interest and has since been disbarred for his part in the drug trade in Mingo County. Judge recused himself then later got brought up on federal corruption charges.
TL; DR: Mingo County is a hellhole.
