Harris On Trial Again
First Judicial District Atty. Gen. Tony Clark is going for the second bite of the Apple in the re-trial of former Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris. Senior Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood issued a directed verdict in favor of Harris on charges of criminal simulation earlier this year. The mistrial by hung jury involved a complicated deal involving two vehicles and two bloodhounds to be used by the Unicoi County Sheriff's Department in search and rescue and 45 hundred dollars exchanged and returned to the Sheriff. A variety of other charges are being faced by Harris at future trials. His supporters say allegations are politically motivated. Harris suffered a brain injury in a fall at the jail 2010 and last year took an early, disability retirement. The trial is expected to take several days in Erwin.(CS)
