Governor Warner appoints outside counsel for investigator sued for malicious prosecution

As reported here in the Bristol paper, since former Wise County Commonwealth's Attorney Joey Carrico has moved to the Attorney General's office, that office has withdrawn from representation of the defendant in a civil case which may involve Carrico's testimony, and Governor Warner has appointed SW VA attorneys Gerald Gray and Roy Jessee to represent the defendant, an investigator accused of malicious prosecution in connection with his investigation of an excessive force case at the Wallens Ridge prison in Wise County.
