The size and maximum occupancy of the court rooms have nothing to do with Fontez. The comment about the tent was a sarcastic remark made by Judge John Bell. They are considering other options such as buying the old Overholts Hardware building as a temporary solution.

Ignorance like this is why people look down on our county. You need to learn to spell and get a clue on reality.

Funny how that came into play. The man who owns it and needs to get rid of it is also on the board that makes the decision. Hmmm. Seems like a conflict of interest.

Armando has nothing to do with it! A bigger court room will cost money. I am not willing to pay higher taxes so the freaks who constantly break the law can be more comfortable.

Discussions underway on a way to alleviate courthouse overcrowding
A group of Cocke County officials met Wednesday with one of the owners of the former Overholt's Hardware Store on East Broadway, to talk about possible remedies for the current courthouse overcrowding. The state fire marshal has given the county till the end of the month to address overcrowding in the two courtrooms and the second floor foyer of the courthouse. General Sessions Judge John Bell addressed the county Finance Committee during it's Tuesday evening meeting and suggested an alternative would be to put a tent on the courthouse lawn and equip it with a heater and chairs for those who have pending cases, can not get into the courthouse. But there also was a suggestion that the former hardware store which recently closed it's doors, could be used for seating. Judge Bell was joined by County Mayor Vaughn Moore, County Attorney Carter Moore and Sheriff Armando Fontes in the meeting with Lee Willis, one of the three owners of the hardware store. Judge Bell said the problem is that court case loads have increased dramatically in recent years. "In sessions court we have an increase of over 400 percent, in civil court 300 percent increase and in criminal court we at a nearly 500 percent increase, since I started as judge," he told the meeting. Judge Bell said he hears an average of 300 cases per week, and there also are circuit, juvenile and child support cases heard in the courthouse nearly every week. But the fire marshal says the General Sessions courtroom has a capacity of 49 individuals, the Circuit Courtroom a maximum of 125 people and the second floor foyer can have only 25 people. So the issue is an appropriate seating area for those waiting to have their case heard. Willis said the building is available for purchase at a price of $300,000, or the county can enter into a five year lease at $1,200 rent per month. And if during the period the county decides to purchase the structure, the owners would rebate half of the rent that had been paid. He told the group "If the county can see where this could be a nice place in downtown Newport, then I want you to have it, if not, then I don't." The former hardware store is located to the east of the courthouse, and has 9,000 square feet on each of two floors. It also is equipped with a freight elevator. Following the tour of the building Mayor Moore said a study will have to be conducted to determine the cost of remodeling the building, after the actual use is determined; "whether we use it for a courtroom or a jail. It's an offer we want to pursue if we determine it could be a solution to the problem we've got with the courthouse." The Cocke County Legislative Body will meet in regular session Monday evening and is expected to consider the overcrowding issue at that time.

Another problem is all of the continuences that they give. Each case shouldnt have more than 1 cont. Each time there after they need to be prepared to pay at least 75 bucks court costs. At the time. No payment plans. That would help pay the rent on another space. That way those of us that dont break the law dont have to pay for it! Get wise let the troubled people pay there own way.

You don't always have that choice. And if you go to court you pay court costs.

Being stupid is nothing to brag about. And ignorance is a big part of why people make fun of anyone who lives in the south. And the main reason plants don't want to come here. Of course we can't all get a government check like you. People drawing welfare don't have to worry about having a job. Must be nice.

OR they could actually punish the law breakers. Make the punishment something they don't want to happen again. When going to jail is a vacation why would they care. Lay around getting fat while watching cable on big screen TVs. WHY would it ever be considered to pay for cable for inmates? We do not have to provide them entertainment. Let them screw each other for entertainment.

And pray for rain.

The only problem with that is the good people who have actual business at the court house has to try to get thru the hoards of em standing around smoking and acting a fool cursing on their cell phones and to each other about how they don't deserve to be there.

You are quite right. Most of em don't belong there. Most should be hanging from the big trees behind the Courthouse.
Same faces, same excuses , same drugs and the stories never change. But then neither does their behavior, does it?
Load your guns. Until this community, and many others, decides to clean ourselves up and embrace law and order we will continue the decline and you and I will continue to pay the bill.
Load your guns. Pull the trigger.
