Alexander Hudson was 14 when he and two friends were charged with robbing a Rocky Mount man and strangling him in his bed.
His attorneys tried to get the case dismissed, saying he was held in jail 8 hours too long to get a speedy trial.


Judge William Alexander ruled the trial will go on ... because defense attorneys agreed to the trial date.
Hudson's attorneys say THAT'll be the basis for their appeal.

So "take after take" probably didn't even faze Hermie and Elliott Sadler yesterday.
The brothers tried out their acting chops for a TV ad for the Virginia Lottery's racing scratch game.
And it was the Lottery's lucky day.
Elliott Sadler was a free add-on by big brother Hermie -- whose 700 thousand dollar Lottery sponsorhip contract may have lost some luster when he failed to qualify in two of the four Virginia races this year.
Scratch tickets that don't win can be mailed in for a chance to be on Hermie's pit crew in Martinsville in the fall.
