Profile of retiring Circuit Court judge from Prince William County

The Washington Post has this interesting profile ("County Judge Nears End of Oft-Storied Career," 5/30/04) of Judge Herman A. Whisenant, Jr., retiring from the bench in Prince William County. The article says:

"Since the early 1990s, Whisenant has overseen trials involving grisly, often jolting crimes, including the notorious case of Lorena Bobbitt, the woman who sliced off her husband's penis and was found not guilty by reason of insanity, as well as the capital murder trial of Justin Michael Wolfe, a 21-year-old drug kingpin whom Whisenant sentenced to death in 2002 for hiring a friend to assassinate his marijuana supplier."
