After losing a high-profile case involving a marijuana-smoking truck driver, the commonwealth’s attorney in Albemarle County has vowed to get some standards on the books for prosecuting people who may be impaired by pot. 


There will be no trial for Jesse Matthew Jr., the man who kidnapped and killed Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington and UVA student Hannah Graham.  Instead, the 34-year-old pleaded guilty and was spared the death penalty.  Still, the victims’ parents had their day in court.  Sandy Hausman was there and filed this report.
