Judge Pomrenke not hearing criminal cases while under criminal investigation

WASHINGTON COUNTY, VA (WJHL) – While he remains under criminal investigation for witness tampering, Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Kurt Pomrenke is only hearing civil cases, not criminal ones, according to a spokesperson for the Virginia Supreme Court.

“It is our understanding that currently Judge Pomrenke is hearing only civil cases,” Director of Legislative and Public Relations Kristi Wright said. “We understand this is being done by agreement of the judges.”

Pomrenke’s wife, Stacey, will report to prison this month on corruption-related convictions connected to the ongoing Bristol Virginia Utilities federal investigation.
