Putnam Man Wins Free Divorce

Webb’s Annual Valentine’s Day Contest

Charles R. “Rusty” Webb

A Putnam County military member is the winner of an unusual Valentine’s Day contest.

“Brian H.” will receive a free divorce from Charleston lawyer Charles R. “Rusty” Webb.

“It was basically a marriage after a very-short term relationship,” Webb told The West Virginia Record.

Webb has been “untying the knot” for 10 years.


“We chose his story because he was in the military,” Webb explains.
