The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Knoxville defense attorney in connection to an ongoing investigation.

At the request of District Attorney General Greeley Wells, the TBI began investigating Bruce Edward Poston on Jan. 22. A woman stepped forward to the Knox County District Attorney General’s Office and the TBI, stating Poston was supplying her with money and pills. She also claimed a sexual relationship with Poston.

The woman told investigators the 67-year-old represented her husband in a criminal matter and further alleged Poston mishandled her husband’s case in order to further his sexual relationship with her.

During the investigation, an undercover operation corroborated the information provided by the complainant, which included the delivery of pills by Poston.

On Tuesday, the Knox County Grand Jury returned indictments on the Concord man, charging him with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, one count of attempted delivery of a controlled substance, and two counts of violation of driver’s license law. Poston was subsequently booked into the Knox County Jail, posted a $3,000 bond, and was released. The case remains active and ongoing.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

Roy Exum: Never Disturb The Dead

I’ve got too many things in my life that scare me so I’ve always been real leery of “unnecessary fear.” A guy named Terry wanted to teach me how to catch a live rattlesnake one time but had a tough time telling me what exactly to do with the angry serpent when the time came to let it go. I have the same view of these paranormal societies where otherwise sane people go around looking ... (click for more)
