Tappahannock shooters nabbed in Westmoreland

Anthony M. Green, 20, and Sidney A. Green, 26, were arrested today in the woods behind 129 Grainery Road, just outside Montross.  They are suspects in a shooting that took place in Tappahannock on March 9.

At approximately 2 p.m., shots were fired into a car at the Queen Street Sunoco.  Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department, working in conjunction with the Tappahannock Police and the Virginia State Police, picked up the two Greens, who are both from Tappahannock, but are not brothers, without incident.

Each of the Greens is charged in Tappahannock with possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a felony, firing into an occupied vehicle, and reckless handling of a firearm, and in Westmoreland County, with possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a felony and possession of marijuana.

Brownley’s lawyer appeals sentence

On Jan. 25, 2011, defense attorney Frank S. Ferguson filed notice in Westmoreland Circuit Court of the appeal of the 14-month sentence Lynn C. Brownley received Jan. 3.
An appeal will be made to Virginia’s Court of Appeals “as soon as possible,” according to Ferguson. The judgment was entered in the Westmoreland County court Jan. 3 and the defense attorney has characterized the terms as overly burdensome and well above normally accepted guidelines that recommend no time in jail. The severity of the Jan. 3 sentence from Judge Taylor was not anticipated by Brownley or his attorney, Frank S. Ferguson. In addition to the 10-year incarceration with eight years and ten months suspended, Brownley was to be placed on total
