Camble on [January 26]

When defense attorney Michael Morchower brought up that Orange County Commonwealth’s Attorney Diana Wheeler made a plea bargain with a witness and withheld it from defense, Circuit Judge Daniel Bouton had no choice but to throw out a guilty verdict against James H. Long, Jr.—convicted of first-degree murder in September, 2006—and start over. When asked who ought to replace her as prosecutor, Wheeler opted for someone who knows a little something about starting fresh: Jim Camblos, defeated in his bid for the Albemarle Commonwealth’s Attorney seat by Denise Lunsford. Camblos’ first case as assistant prosecutor for the city of Waynesboro begins on February 18.

Jim Camblos will take on his first case as Waynesboro assistant prosecutor on February 18.
