Va. justices to hear former Dem activist’s appeal

(AP) The Supreme Court of Virginia is set to hear the appeal of a former Democratic activist from Falls Church who was convicted of molesting two children.

Michael Gardner is serving 22 years in prison for aggravated sexual battery and object penetration. The Supreme Court will hear his appeal Wednesday morning.

Gardner had been chairman of the city’s Democratic committee and his wife is a former mayor. In May 2012, an Arlington County Circuit Court jury convicted Gardner of molesting two girls who attended a sleepover party for his daughter’s 10th birthday.
