Spitting incident draws six-month sentence
A man who admitted spitting on a witness last November during a Washington County District Court hearing was given a six-month sentence Thursday in the same courtroom.
Charles Ardinger Spigler, 30, of Hagerstown, apologized to the court for his "unethical" act on Nov. 25.
"There was more to it than you know," Spigler told visiting Judge Milnor Roberts.
Spigler pleaded guilty to second-degree assault on Jason Shawn Kesner, a witness in a neighborhood dispute case in which Spigler was accused of destruction of property.
In November, Kesner was seated in the courtroom gallery as Judge Ralph France was about to pronounce a 13-month prison sentence on Spigler for bashing a windshield on a car last August with a crowbar.
