No criminal charges have been filed in relation to Knoxville News Sentinel reporting on a local election in Blount County. At this time there does not appear to be a formal investigation underway or any plans for criminal prosecution.

It is believed, however, that the statute of limitations would extend beyond the date of the local election. The extent of a probe into the situation, if any, is not known, nor is it known which authorities might have jurisdiction. The newspaper's representatives have not been in contact with us to comment on the matter.

Someone needs to investigate those people, too!

Clearly, there just aren't enough investigations. Someone should investigate that.

Maybe if the dress were blue-

But there is no dress involved this time so calls to lawyers or employees by reporters is all we have. How is any of that just or fair for the citizens who may have to appear in those court rooms? This is suppose to be about a fair and impartial justice system. Oh wait, I forgot where I lived. The KNS is now the law of the land.......

I would just like to know who placed the call to the press in the first place.
