Robbery plea for Va. justice's son
The son of the chief justice of the Virginia Supreme Court has pleaded guilty to robbery and two lesser charges stemming from a home invasion in June.
He faces a possible life term when he is sentenced March 17.
According to authorities, Hassell and another man forced their way into a home where Hassell held captive and beat the resident while his accomplice looked for drugs. The accomplice has not been apprehended.
Hassell was sentenced in December 2007 to 16 months for forgery and a probation violation. The violation was for previous convictions of petit larceny and unlawful entry.
