The PUBLIC OFFICIALS, ATTORNEY’S and members of the legal profession in Gilmer County and Charleston, West Virginia feel that they are so important that they can do anything they want, and get away with it, and quite frankly this has been going on for some time and this current “Way it is, … is very counterproductive for any community.
“There is the way it is and the way it is supposed to be, and attorneys in WV are not suppose to be able to get SCOTT FREE away with criminal actions!”
A good example is the Butcher and Butcher law firm, who did not do an accounting on the AJ Woofter estate for 12 years, although West Virginia law states they are required annually. Timothy B Butcher and R Terry Butcher are so fully enmeshed in the Good Ole Boy system, they can just make a call to Big Joe Manchin and Joe will attempt to cover for any of their crimes. Our biggest weapon to combat against this will be at the polls this election day.
Who are the 1100 people that voted for Hough on primary election day? Although, Hough was on the ballot all by himself which is a sure fire way to win, people still have a choice to put a check there and maybe they should be better educated to what a dishonest person Gerald B Hough actually is. Now I am not saying this because personally I truly think he is one dirty rotten criminal son of a bitch, I am saying this because of documents and facts that prove Hough is the worst kind of attorney that has ever come down the road, in the state of West By God Virginia.
Let’s reviews some of Gerry Hough’s actions and statements from the recent past that citizens of Gilmer County have commented on…
I really feel sorry for Gerry Hough’s family. This prosecutor does not even have the dignity to keep his innocent family out of his doings. This is an example of a sorry man who won’t stop at anything to try to get his way.
A reader was correct about him even using his family. I see Mr. Hough is posting the circuit court schedule. Usually circuit clerk tells us that!
Mr. Hough what we need is not the court schedule; it is your answer to all the cases you have mishandled.
Comment by Mary B.
If I were not a believer, I am now. Just seeing how Prosecutor Hough avoids answering the question of those who put him in the office, as well as hiding behind his family, makes all the comments I have read true. Since we did not hire his family why are they answering to the calls? Usually people do not speak because they need to talk to their attorneys. Here Hough IS an attorney and a prosecutor (or is he?) and should not have to pass his responsibility to his family. I think he is not fit for his job and he should resign. Then he can practice the law at his own expense and not Gilmer County’s.

NOW HERE IS THE GERRY HOUGH REPLY TO THOSE TWO COMMENTS ABOVE!
Dear Mary B. (that’s not your name is it?) and
Jason R. (that’s not yours either, is it?): NOTE: It is their real name asshole!
Are you sending your messages directly from Karen Elkin’s office or are you doing her work for her?
One last comment for you both (and you Karen):
I don’t quit….. And just because you want me to quit and make it easy for you and others to control the last remnant of freedom in Gilmer County, I’ll never quit doing my job.
You don’t really think you are distracting us from the special deals you received or the investigation of Freddie Hill’s death do you?
OK THIS IS A TYPICAL ATTACK THE MESSENGER RESPONSE WHICH IS HOW YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A REAL FAKE FUCK AT THE CONTROLS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE COUNTY AND WE ALL WITNESSED HOW HOUGH BUNGLED THE FRED HILL MURDER IN WHICH, IN REALITY THERE WAS NO INVESTIGATION!!
TO RECOGNIZE A SON OF A BITCH LIKE GERRY HOUGH THAT ACTUALLY BREAKS THE LAW TO BRING FORTH FALSE CHARGES AND EVIDENCE AS HE DID IN THE FAMOUS TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE CASE IS ONE THING — BUT THE MENTION OF FRED HILL IS INSULTING FOR ALL HOUGH DID WAS COVER FOR THE REAL MURDERERS OF WHICH HE IS WELL ACQUAINTED FOR THEY ARE PEOPLE FROM GLENVILLE IN GILMER COUNTY THAT WE ALL KNOW.
More Comments from the PEOPLE of Gilmer County …
Mr. Hough, I am neither Karen Elkin nor speaking for her. Therefore, your speculation and/or accusation is false. If this is an example of your work by trying to guess, you are definitely a sorry man.
You must keep in mind that you are our employee and getting paid by our hard earned money. Unfortunately, because of your devious actions we are not getting our money’s worth. I cannot understand how Larry Chapman justified approving your pay increase for doing nothing. I like to know what has gone on there. It happened right about the time when Larry Chapman was pushing the GSC’s $28 million bond deal! Could that been a pay off so you would keep your mouth shut? Since you keep listing the upcoming cases, why don’t you list all the past cases you have handled and the outcomes.

I visit this site on daily basis. As I read the information about the Gilmer County Prosecutor, I am stunned to see the attitude of the prosecutor for Gilmer.
This man known as Gerry Hough is in dire need of mental assistance. I cannot believe how a prosecutor can go so low to use his family members to defend him. This reveals to all concerned, Hough is not a good attorney if he is not able to defend himself personally.
By judging his responses, he is avoiding the issues in question and instead playing childish games that no professional should do. He is using his family members to gain pity. Just seeing how this mad man is reacting to the issue, I can easily see why some want to be anonymous.
I surely hope and I am sure, the people of Gilmer County are smart enough to see where the problem is and quit listening to this man’s garbage.
Gilmer County officials must take action to preserve Gilmer County’s reputation. If not then they are approving corruptions in the legal system.
Comment by Sam Forno – Wood Co.
Gilmer County, we have a Prosecutor who is a bald face liar. I just read the Gilmer County Journal and noticed this man using his 17-year old son to attack another candidate! This man keeps doing it and doesn’t stop to amaze me. Hough is using and abusing anything and everything in his path, even his own juvenile child! He still cannot speak for himself and instead resort to using others. Just like his work and responsibilities where he always has others to do it. I cannot understand how he is an attorney if he cannot even represent himself. Wouldn’t a normal man, if he is one, keep his family out of his political business? Citizens were only speaking to him, and what does he do? Drag his wife, daughter, and his son into it. Like it was said, you are a sick and abusing man and I suggest you check into Sharps Hospital in Weston. How can you even perform your job? If we had doubted what was told about you, now you have proved that all complaints about you are truthful by your ignorance and stupidity, by dodging the issues, and your evasive actions.

AND NOW HERE IS GERRY’S REPLY AND ONCE AGAIN HOUGH DOES NOT ADDRESS THE ISSUES AT HAND!
sam forno: The issues in this county (since you say you live in Wood) are drugs, the demise of families, and the love of money. Our country was built by courageous people, who were willing to sacrifice for the common good. Gilmer County has plenty of the latter and less of the former. Go ahead and judge and criticize and express. It’s your American privilege. That privilege came at a dear price. And we will agree to disagree. Signed, the madman, Gerry Hough
Comment by Gerry Hough
To Jason R: Look at the dormitory bond on record. There’s a place for the prosecutor to sign. I refused to.
Your personal attacks on me are malicious. But Karen Elkin spreading lies at the workplace while on duty is what it is – and you cannot make me the villain.
Comment by Gerry Hough
AND HERE IS THE REPLY TO THE REPLY
Yes indeed we are witnessing what a jerk is. A jerk is Gerald B Hough a public official, Gerry Hough is acting very immature. Whether someone was guilty or not, it is un-ethical for this prosecutor to do what he is doing. Mr. Hough just explain why you lost the case of Jessica Self for example? Mr. Hough you continuously avoid answering the original call and instead attacking others. If you claim there is no federal case against you, there should be. How did Karen Elkin come to this picture? You act like people in Gilmer County support you. Well, they don’t. I have heard many statements from people that got screwed by you because you had not prepared to defend them as the representative of the state. You have convinced yourself that Shelly DeMarino quit Calhoun because she is after your job in Gilmer.
You are gutless making statement about her not doing her job in Calhoun and leaving pile of work behind. Whether the statement is true or not, it should not come out of a lazy man’s mouth like you.
I recall how dirty you played Hough, when running for your election by printing and passing out papers against yourself just to gain sympathy. You wanted the people to believe the other side did it! You must remember in the last election you did not get elected because people of Gilmer County wanted you. You were elected with minimal votes because there was no other choice on the ballot. It is sickening to see how a person who wants people thinking of him as a religious man, would then resort to such immoral actions. That also must be part of your game plan.
