Clay County Sheriff Miles Slack, charged with hacking his former wife's work computer at the Clay magistrates office, has agreed to plead guilty.

Federal prosecutors filed a motion in federal court in Charleston requesting a plea hearing for Slack.

The hearing is set before U.S. District Judge John Copenhaver on Sept. 17.

Slack had been charged through a federal information for the illegal wiretapping of a computer held by the WV Supreme Court.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin has said Slack secretly installed a keystroke logger on the computer when he and his wife were still married. The couple has since divorced.

Goodwin told media the spying device remained in place for two weeks and Slack successfully intercepted emails, messages and other data from the computer.
