Former public defender back in jail for pimping charges

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, West Virginia -

Former public defender Steven Conifer is back behind bars after his bond was pulled. 

Conifer was arrested in July 2011, accused of pimping and receiving support from prostitution. Prosecutors said Conifer was caught in explicit conversations trying to schedule meet ups with small children. 

Because the case was not indicted within a year, Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants announced the case would likely be dropped. The case, however, remains open. 

Conifer remains in the South Central Regional Jail being held on $5,000 bond. The Kanawha County Courthouse remains closed for the holiday until Monday.
