Corsicana — Access to the Navarro County Courthouse has returned to normal following a court order earlier Wednesday afternoon that temporarily restricted access to one entrance.

The order to close all but one of the entrances to the courthouse was issued by District Judge James Lagomarsino after a complaint by prosecutors in a sexual assault trial that defense and prosecution witnesses were seated in the same area outside the courtroom.

After about two hours, Lagomarsino ammended his order, opening the entrances back up, but placing extra security outside the district courtroom.

We'll post more on this story soon.
