In his remarks Friday, Judge Destert conceded that his court should not issue contempt citations for acts occurring outside the Circuit Court room over which Judge Dostert was presiding. Initially, Judge Destert had issued the citation ihe said, based on an 1889 State Supreme Court contempt action case against a Wheeling newspaper which had accused the Supreme Court of dishonesty. But Friday, Judge Dostert cited a West Virginia University Law Review article that drew a distinction between lower Circuit Courts and the State Supreme Court. The ar- ticle stated that the State Supreme Court may issue a contempt citation for acts oc- curring outside the court room since it is not an appellate body, with no access to juries. But because the Circuits do have juries, Circuit Court Judges should refer contempt cases involving acts performed outside the courtroom through normal jury channels. In defending his contempt action, Judge Destert said that while the public is entitled to criticize judges, it is not entitled to go so far as to cross the line into derision of the court. If indicted by the Grand Jury and convicted, Porterfield could face a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $200 fine. Although neither Porterfield, nor his attorney, Clarence E. martin, spok e at the hearing, Porterfield said after th ne hearing, he was confident the, case is nOW closed.
