WVC 32A-2-21 §32A-2-21. Consent orders.
(a) The commissioner may enter into consent orders at any time with a person to resolve a matter arising under this article. A consent order shall be signed by the person to whom it is issued and shall indicate agreement to the terms contained in it. A consent order need not constitute an admission by a person that this article or a rule or order issued or promulgated under this article has been violated, nor need it constitute a finding by the commissioner that the person has committed a violation.

(b) Notwithstanding the issuance of a consent order, the commissioner may seek civil or criminal penalties or compromise civil penalties concerning matters encompassed by the consent order unless by its terms the consent order expressly precludes the commissioner from doing so.
