Board: No conflict for county prosecutor to handle TMT cases

NANCY COOK LAUER/West Hawaii Today County Prosecutor Mitch Roth addresses the county Board of Ethics on Wednesday in Hilo.

Mitch Roth does not have a conflict of interest prosecuting cases from the standoff on Maunakea, but he should remove himself from any involvement in the cases to allay public concerns, the county Board of Ethics said Wednesday.
