Virginia Chief Justice Son Sentenced

Posted by Bill on December 7, 2007

The VLW Blog (Virginia Lawyer Week) posted today that Leroy R. Hassell Jr., 19 year old son of Virginia’s Chief Justice, Hon. Leroy R. Hassell, was sentenced to 16 months in jail for failing to complete the 200 hours of community service imposed as part of convictions for embezzlement, unlawful entry and trespassing, and forging documents saying that he had completed the community service. See VLW.

The Richmond Times has full story–see Richmond Times.

Of course, Leroy Hassell, Jr. is 19 years old, and made some unfortunate choices.  Justice Hassell and family, I’m sure, would have perfered the young man made better choices.  But, young Hassell is an adult, but he is not fully mature.  He will have this matter with him the rest of his life.

I am sorry, your Honor.
