  • Spring sessions can solve and involve resolution

    I received an interesting Facebook message from my niece; she said that she thought New Year’s resolutions were a very bad idea because January is such a rough time to commit to anything.

  • Martin hearing to focus on hard drives

    A suppression hearing in the case of a Turners Station man charged with rape will include testimony about evidence found on computer hard drives.

    In 2011, Joseph Martin, 39, was charged with illegally having sex with a minor over the course of three years.
