It seems like Rick Butler getting himself in a jam has thrown a monkeywrench into the political machine that is having to work secretly in Erwin.
Could it be that the Harris/Woods clan had Butler pegged as the one they would support for sheriff in 14?Thus putting them and the dope dealers back in power?
With Clark taking his time on this,could it be they are trying to figure out an angle on how to cover this up and make it look good?
I've wondered and have heard several people question why the jury wasn't sequestered in either of the Kent Harris trials.That opens the door for corruption right there.Times are hard,Kent has lots of stolen money and the federal government has given him more to buy the not guilty verdicts.
The state can bring all the evidence they want,when $$$$$ changes hands,they will get off scott free.So I must wonder just what is taking so long with the charges on Rick Butler.

Ole Joe - it is intuitiavely obvious that where there is $$$, there is the great potential for corruption - no matter how hi up the food chain!

i think its time for you.. the ONE person who just put all THREE of these comments on here.... to SHUT UP!!!!! You are a discrace to society..why dont u go and ask him for yourself?? im sure that his number is available to the public. you are all the time starting a bunch of shit on here and the only reason you do it is probably to keep the attention off of yourself.. i think its sickening how people think anymore! why should you care so much about what happens to butler?? im sure he will be dealt with. do you think that the "rick butler" case is THE ONLY CASE that tony clark has to work on?? unlike you..who has all the time in the world to stir studid crap up like this.. tony is a very important and busy man. so why dont ou give it a rest. our officials are in office for a reason!! believe it or not... they know how to do their jobs!!

Come on, surely you can see why there is a delay in filing charges, don't you? I bet 'ol Rick has proven himself to be a gold mine to the TBI and General Clark.

I would say that the TN HWY Patrol will make a presentment to the next session of the grandjury. The charge is a felony and would have to be bound over to the grandjury anyhow out of sessions court.

If that is the case,that would be a good trade off.I want to believe Clark is doing his best,and that's honest from the heart and nothing personal against any of the involved.But I can't help but wonder after how he handled a presentment of a former colleague if something isn't up with the jury not being sequestered,it's like Rock Creek Ski said,when money is involved it opens up the opportunity for corruption.

Just what is it chickenshit that they are trying to hide in the UCSD. You keep saying they are getting rid of the ones that are telling things. Just what are they doing they don't want told? The public deserves to know what is going on. Why should the UCSD turn it over to the DA? Isn't it up to the THP to prosecute if anything went on.

Or just looking trying to get rid of any competition in next election? Small birdie told me it doesn't matter because there is going to be a BIG name candidate coming out before long. One that doesn't need anybody to back them to help. They will do it on their own.

I hope Harris and company works as hard against Mike as they did last time, they really set him ahead by separating him from themselves. Maybe it will be Killen or Butler, and they can get the office back like it used to be. Parties, corruption, lies, pocket lining, fraud, playoffs, camping with men, drinking at work, ect. Your right who wants an honest sheriff? I miss the old way! It's no fun reading the news any more

Why do you call people names on here?I've noticed you call everyone you interact with some kind of name,it's easy to do on here cause nobody knows who you are,lol.You're really brave.
I don't know what goes on at the UCSD,I know what used to go on but that has all stopped and it's all business now.

Good luck with that ! Lengel thought he had it in the bag,but when they handed him the results,he threw the papers in the air,got in his car and left and never said a word,lol.He didn't even thank his supporters for their support.
The people of Unicoi County are happy with the sheriff we have now,I don't think they will chance trading him in,he's too honest and they like it.

Kent you are the chickenshit on here. You are less than worthless. You were allways a disgrace to the badge. You violated your oath of office on a daily basis and you and your whole family know it. You just can't stand the fact you got caught.

Go to the Circuit Court Clerks office in Unicoi and ask for a copy of the "Motion to Sequester" the jury. The district attorney filed it before the last trial and the Judge ruled against the State saying it wasn't necessary. And I thought the paper said THP was still investigating Butlers false report. They (THP) take forever with certain reports. I was involved in a bad wreck couple of years ago. Took 4 months to get reports complete. And what colleague did Clark not prosecute? I am just curious I hadn't heard that one?
