Judge recuses himself in McVicker case

Andra Belknap, Ojai Valley News reporter
Patrick John McVicker III appeared in Ventura County Superior Court Nov. 17. 
McVicker, a Ventura man, faces two felony charges related to the July 6 hit-and-run crash that resulted in the death of Ojai educator and actor John Slade.
McVicker has entered not guilty pleas on both counts.
California Deputy Attorney General Matthew King argued Nov. 17 on behalf of an Oct. 10 recommendation from the Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers to restrict McVicker's real estate practice.
McVicker's attorney, Brian Weilbacher, filed an opposition motion to the recommendation Oct. 17.
Weilbacher and his co-counsel William Haney were ultimately successful.
