CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - Culpeper Commonwealth’s Attorney Megan Frederick plans to appeal a judge’s decision that she committed civil battery against another county official.

Culpeper General District Court Judge Charles Foley’s decision came in a lawsuit filed by county IT systems administrator Todd Frazier. The Culpeper Star-Exponent (https://bit.ly/1W0f4KZ) reports that Foley awarded Frazier $1,500 on Tuesday.

Foley’s order says Frederick grabbed Frazier on the arm as he attempted to leave her office on March 4, 2013.

Frazier had testified that he dismantled records management software from the computers of Frederick’s secretaries at the sheriff’s request.

Foley’s order says Fredrick was justifiably upset when she learned that her office’s access to digital police reports was severed. But grabbing Frazier wasn’t appropriate.

Frederick’s attorney, Michael Matheson, says she will appeal the decision to circuit court.
