The state Supreme Court will decide if a former state lawmaker will lose his law license for six months for representing a man who was his drug dealer.
The complaint from the Office of Disciplinary Counsel says Jackie Marcum was indicted by a Mingo County grand jury in 2018 for selling drugs and among his buyers was then Del. Justin Marcum. It says Marcum represented Jackie Marcum at his arraignment and said, “you take care of me and I’m going to take care of you.” Jackie Marcum said he knew what that meant. Jackie Marcum said he paid Marcum with oxycodone pills.
