Prosecutors who defied senior judge offer apology to end contempt trial

The Roanoke Times has this article ("Pittsylvania prosecutors apologize for conduct," 12/4) on the conclusion of the trial of contempt charges against the Commonwealth's attorney for Pittsylvania County and his assistant, who bucked heads with a senior Circuit Court judge and told him what they thought of him. At the end, the special prosecutor is quoted as saying, "I learned as a young lawyer real fast that if you're going to take on a judge, you better get him the first time."
