CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia prosecutor has agreed to attend an intervention program on misdemeanor domestic violence charges.

Mark Plants is charged with domestic battery of his 11-year-old son. Prosecutors say Plants hit the boy more than 10 times with a leather belt on Feb. 22.

He also is charged with violating a domestic-violence protection order. The order required that Plants stay away from his ex-wife and their sons.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/Wkqe2T) reports that Plants signed the agreement Friday to attend the 32-week batterers intervention program in Putnam County. The charges could be dropped upon completion of the program.

Plants has said he plans to remain as prosecutor.
