Prosecutors Want Baumgartner To Get A Tougher Sentence
Former Knox County judge Richard Baumgartner faces sentencing next week and federal prosecutors have asked for a term higher than guidelines call for. The government is asking Greeneville U.S. District Court Judge Ronnie Greer to imprison Baumgartner for at least two years. The filing by federal prosecutors is in response to the defense asking the court to allow probation but prosecutors contend that a conviction on five felony counts is deserving of "an upward variance" from the sentencing guideline. Baumgartner pleaded guilty two years ago to a state charge of official misconduct for buying pills from a felon on probation in his court. While that state plea kept his judicial pension intact, Baumgartner lost his pension with the federal indictment. (bg)
