“This is perhaps the last investigation on which the late Trooper Eric Workman and the late Corporal Marshall Bailey worked. The work of these heroes paid off yet again with another bad guy behind bars. It's also worth noting that this is National Police Week--a time to honor all of our men and women in uniform for their sacrifices and to honor those who, like Corporal Bailey and Trooper Workman, made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities safe.”

Statement by U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin on affirmance of UBB Security Chief's Conviction

Click on the text to listen to the audio file:

“This case is an important victory for the safety of miners, so today’s decision is a welcome one,” said U.S. Attorney Goodwin. “Investigations of mine disasters serve a critical role in making mines safer. To obstruct one of those investigations, especially one involving a tragedy like that at Upper Big Branch, is reprehensible.”

“The evidence against Mr. Stover was overwhelming,” Goodwin continued, “so I am not surprised that his conviction was upheld in all respects. This case should be a powerful warning to anyone tempted to interfere with a mine safety inquiry.”
