Judge Halverson's husband Edward, beat her over the head with a frying pan last night. Officers had to force their way into the house to rescue her. Badly bruised over her head and face, Judge Halverson was rushed to the hospital.
Apparently, Edward Halverson has had quite a few brushes with the law, having served four years in prison with ten felony arrests in three states. He's charged with attempted murder, and two counts of battery. Along with justice, love must be blind, too.
This is just shake your head unbelievable. donchais says, "Maybe he just "snapped" after living with her for nine years."
Although we didn't blog about it, the T&T ladies watched in total fascination Judge Halverson's Judicial Discipline Complaint hearing and have been waiting to hear the decision. Halverson was suspended in July, 2007 stemming from charges she created a hostile work environment as well as inappropriately communicated with jurors.
