Roger Stone posted a controversial Instagram photo of a judge. Now, he's heading to court to face her.


WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Roger Stone will head to court Thursday to face the judge who was featured next to a crosshair in one of his now-deleted Instagram posts.

Stone, a former adviser of President Donald Trump, filed a formal apology Monday for the controversial post. The original post showed Judge Amy Berman Jackson next to what appeared to be a crosshair, similar to that found on a rifle scope. Stone then deleted that post and published the photo without the crosshair. Both images are now deleted from Instagram.

Along with the formal apology, Stone followed up to explain the misunderstanding on his Instagram account.

Due to an order from the judge that both counsels and witnesses "must refrain from making statements to the media or in public settings that pose a substantial likelihood of material prejudice to this case," Stone's posts could have an effect on the outcome of his ongoing trial.
