Port Angeles: Court bracing for large turnout for Roberts trial

PORT ANGELES — Court officials are bracing themselves for the large number of people expected to attend the murder trial of Thomas Martin Roberts.

“We’re getting prepared for that possibility,” said Superior Court Administrator Lindy Clevenger.

Court bailiffs will be using a metal-detecting wand on everyone entering the courtroom, Clevenger said.

Spectators will not be allowed to bring food or drink, laptop computers, cameras, tape recorders, cellular telephones, pagers, backpacks, knives, pepper spray or other weapons into the courtroom, she said.
