A Virginia criminal defense attorney was publicly reprimanded with terms last week for an “angry and aggressive” in-court exchange with a probation officer that was followed up by an email containing some choice words.

On June 8, the Seventh District Subcommittee of the Virginia State Bar voted to approve an agreed disposition for a public reprimand with terms for attorney Aaron M. Burgin, a solo practitioner in the Shenandoah Valley.
