For the Record

March 02, 2002

In a Feb. 26 story about the race for county judgeship Office No. 22,

several items need to be clarified. Vickie Bridgman handled civil cases

prior to working for the public defender, not the other way around as

reported. Also, in a case Bridgman handled, the sentence for a woman who

accepted a plea deal on a drunk driving charge was incorrectly reported.

The woman served at least 120 days under house arrest, but no jail time

and was paid about $65,000 in a settlement to a complaint against


Bridgman. The story also incorrectly reported that Bridgman would recuse

herself from all drunk driving cases if elected. She only plans to recuse

herself from teenage reckless driving cases.
