Judge won’t unseal ex-judge’s TBI file; basis of retrial decisions, however, will be public

The truth will be ugly, but it won’t be hidden.

Special Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood made that vow Tuesday as he shut down as “premature” the News Sentinel’s effort to expose information the defenders of four suspects in one of Knoxville’s most horrific crimes are relying on to try to win their clients new trials.

“The public is going to know everything this court relies upon in making its determination,” Blackwood said. “I can tell you right now it’s not going to be pretty, and it’s going to be the worst day of my life but it’s not going to be hidden from the public.”
