Yesterday, more than a hundred
people lined both sides of the street
in front of David Mason's home in the
Cave Spring area of Roanoke County.

They cheered, waved flags, and
held signs welcoming him home.

Many of the neighbors also
decorated their own homes with flags

Felter guilty on eleven misdemeanors
