White's new attorney was Ronald Rumora, a former prosecutor.
The information never states why hiring the new attorney would prevent White from speaking with the FBI, other than to say the officials approved of the new attorney.
Crum also told a deputy to get a statement from White that White never gave Crum any drugs, the information states. The information doesn't clarify if the statement was actually ever made.
The alleged misconduct took place in March, according to the indictment. In April, Crum was shot and killed while sitting in his car in downtown Williamson. Tennis Melvin Maynard has been charged with murder and other offenses in connection with Crum's death.
James Smith, who lost to Crum in the 2012 primary election, was recently appointed sheriff by the Mingo County Commission. He took over for Crum's wife, Rosie Crum, who was appointed sheriff upon her husband's death. Rosie Crum recently stepped down from the position.
In an interview Thursday with the Charleston Gazette, Rosie Crum and her daughter denied the allegations against Eugene Crum. They accused Thornsbury of trying to deflect guilt onto the late Crum, according to the Gazette.
Sparks announced Wednesday he would step down as prosecutor in the Maynard case. Using legal jargon, Sparks said he'd recently learned new information that would harm his ability to prosecute the case and could affect sentencing.
Thursday morning Sparks called the Daily Mail to clarify the new information might affect sentencing in other cases, and had nothing to do with the allegations against Maynard.
When asked about the federal information, Sparks said some of the details within the document played a role in his decision to ask to be disqualified from the case.
Sparks declined to speak to the accusations against him until he had a chance to read the document. He did not answer several phone calls later Thursday.
Later Thursday the Office of Disciplinary Counsel asked the state Supreme Court to immediately suspend Sparks' law license. Citing the new information and the other indictment against Thornsbury, it asked the court to suspend Sparks' license until it could complete an investigation.
A spokeswoman for the Supreme Court said in a news release the court met Thursday to discuss the matter. She expects the court will release its decision in the case today.
Sparks spiritedly defended himself in an interview with the Williamson Daily News. He said he did nothing wrong, and accused Thornsbury of trying to frame him.
Mingo County Commissioner Greg "Hootie" Sparks said in an emailed statement he is "absolutely shocked" by the new allegations and expects Baisden to step down as commissioner.
"I have been informed that as a condition of Commissioner Baisden's plea agreement he will be resigning his position prior to his sentencing," Smith said.
"When this vacancy occurs the commission will begin accepting applications (and) conduct interviews as we did for the recent sheriff appointment."
Goodwin declined to say if he planned to bring charges against Sparks, Baisden or anyone else mentioned in the information filed Thursday. He said Thornsbury is now cooperating with investigators, and the investigation is ongoing.
