Clerk’s office releases 155 pages of TBI investigation of ex-judge Richard Baumgartner

KNOXVILLE — The Knox County Criminal Court Clerk today released 155 pages of the TBI‘s investigative report of former judge Richard Baumgartner.

The redacted version outlines in more detail information that Special Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood used Thursday to award new trials to the convicted killers of University of Tennessee student Channon Christian, 21, and her boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23, in January 2007.

Hundreds and maybe thousands of other criminals may challenge their cases based on the investigative report of Baumgartner’s own criminal actions, according to Blackwood.
