Henrico's Ban On Panhandling Challenged

Posted: Updated:

Henrico, VA—A week after Henrico County supervisors voted to prohibit all panhandling on medians, a man is planning to file a lawsuit against the county over the issue.

Robert Reynolds asked a federal court Wednesday morning to waive a fee he needs to pay, in order to file a lawsuit against Henrico County.

Reynolds says the new law against panhandling violates his freedom of speech. He has been an outspoken opponent of the ordinance since it came before the Board of Supervisors.
