Police arrest son of Chief Justice

Leroy R. Hassell Jr. – son of Virginia Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell Sr. – has been charged with armed robbery in connection with an alleged home invasion in Henrico County on Monday.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Hassell, 23, was arrested early Thursday and is being held without bond pending a hearing on Friday. He also faces a charge of use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

In 2007, the younger Hassell was sentenced to 16 months in jail for a variety of offenses, including embezzlement, unlawful entry and probation violation.
