RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Attorneys for the former chef for Virginia's governor are asking a court to subpoena Virginia's Attorney General who is also the Republican nominee for governor to testify in the chef's pending criminal theft case.
A motion filed in Richmond Circuit Court on Friday seeks a judge's permission to issue subpoenas to Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and one of his top lieutenants, Patrick Dorgan.
Cuccinelli's office was prosecuting the case against fired mansion chef Todd Schneider until stepping aside earlier this year citing a conflict of interest in the case. The court appointed Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney Gregory Underwood to take over as special prosecutor.
