The fate of a Danville school teacher accused of soliciting an undercover cop for sex is in the hands of a jury.

Christy Hubley has the latest on the case against Dwight "Freddie" Willis.

Freddie Willis is well-known in Danville.
He served on city council in the 70's and 80's and he's been a teacher for 25-years.
So there's no doubt this case is a shock to many people.
Freddie Willis is accused of propositioning a male undercover officer for mutual oral sex.
(----------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Danville;]


The alleged incident happened here in Ballou Park last July.
Police were staking out the park because of numerous complaints of homosexual activity.
In court, Willis didn't deny having a conversation about sex with the officer.
He says, though, the officer initiated the conversation and he played along so the man would leave him alone.
(----------------)
[Live=Christy Full/Microwave]
[SUPER=05-Danville;]


The alleged solicitation happened while both men were in their own vehicles.
There have been no accusations that Willis attempted any physical contact with the officer.

More trash talking between Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore and the mayor of the Big Apple.
Governor Gilmore's complaints about out-of-state garbage drew fire this week from New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani.
Now, Gilmore's firing back.
In a letter sent today, Gilmore says, quoting now, "I am offended by your suggestion that New York's substantial cultural achievements, such as they are, obligate Virginia and other states to accept your garbage."
Still quoting "Let me assure you the home state of Washington, Jefferson, and Madison has NO intention of becoming New York's dumping grounds."

((
The governor's plan to make the Volvo plant bigger and better calls for a 50-million dollar incentive package.
Twenty-five million from the Virginia Investment Partnership -- which the General Assembly must first create.
That partnership's purpose would be to give grants to Virginia companies, helping them grown.
Another three million dollars for site work at Volvo would come from the Governor's Opportunity Fund -- that money already is approved.
The rest of the state's contribution -- about 22-million dollars-- would be in the form of tax credits and other incentives.))

Lawmakers are expected to create the investment partnership fund.
But if for some reason they don't, it could send the state and Volvo back into negotiations.
For its part, Volvo still refuses to talk about the deal.
A spokesman called the expansion a "great thing" but said there are some details the company needs to work out before it says anything publicly.
