Hanover school workers face grand jury

By Yvette Yeon - bio | email

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - A judge certified the sex charges against Hanover school teacher Craig Linnon and his wife and school nurse, Angela Linnon, in the Hanover District Courthouse, Thursday. Now the case will go before a grand jury.

In the closed hearing, the 4 alleged victims gave their testimony. After the hearing, in the courthouse parking lot, not a word came out of 49-year-old Craig Linnon about the 6 felonies against him.

His attorney says the result didn't come as a surprise but credits the prosecution for doing a good job.

"It doesn't take a whole lot for the commonwealth to achieve that standard so, normally speaking, they are certified, it's not a surprise to the defense," said Defense Attorney, W. Edward Riley.

"All charges were certified to the circuit court against both the defendants, Craig Linnon and Angela Linnon, 6 charges each involving 4 different victims," said Assistant Commonwealth Attorney, Shari Skipper.

The couple is charged with indecent liberties, and in Craig Linnon's case using a communication device for purpose of soliciting with lascivious intent.

The charges involve incidents that happened at both the Hanover Center for Trades and Technology and the couple's home in Mechanicsville.

"It shed some more light on the case for us as far as what's the nature of it, because until you hear people testify you don't really know what are the facts in some ways, you can have certain versions of it so we got an opportunity to hear some of that," said Riley.
