Fired from his job as a Hawkins County prosecutor and indicted on charges he swapped sex for plea deals, Doug Godbee is once again mired in a sex scandal - this time for allegedly procuring sexual favors from clients as trade for legal work, documents show.

You'd have to get specifics of the most recent jury trials from the clerks office. The only jury I sat on was the Ronald Brewer trial in Feb. 2010.

These women could accept or reject the offer. Judges should always be men because this gives the weaker sex the ability to make a deal with a judge that a man couldn't. It is simple the judge says "put out or I'll put you away" this system has worked for thousands of years. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Ah yes, wonder about the integrity of the grand jury foreman? Is he or she swayed by the prosecutors? If this is so, then this foreman may knowingly and convincingly in a conniving short of way manipulate the members of the grand jury. Wonder just how long too, that foreman has served?
Seems that most TN communities and their problems stem from the fact that their court systems have been highjacked by the judiciary.
Godbee should be prosecuted by the district attorney. Not just be fired. Justice should not be selective simply because he was a former ADA.
People need to ask questions and quit trusting their authorities to take care of them in a blind and foolish way. They need to be held accountable by the people.

I take it you're so stupid you don't even know an out of judicial district judge and an out of judicial district DA are handling the Godbee case? Good lord, try reading a newspaper for once in you pathetic life, idiot.

We visitors, sometimes, speak from a 'general' sort of view without knowing your local politics, but, we do understand that situations get in such a pit of a hole where the local big-dogs are forced to recuse, judges and prosecutors alike, and some outside civil force is forced to come in to strike a balance. Yes, the situation there is about as bad as some other adjoining counties, but for the time being you're getting the sunlight focused on you and we are looking on from a distance. How about saving up your newspapers and shipping them over to Sevier County, we'd like to see a 'real' newspaper for a change, compared to the rage that Stan Voit puts out here.

Whoa Hoss, are you normally this testy or are you just plain defensive? Are you related to Godbee? Or ignorant in general? Sure seems you get upset easily. I really could give a hoot less who is handling the Godbee case. You are obviously missing the bigger picture, which makes you a fool.
You would not need a district judge from out of the area nor an out of region DA if all authorities in Hawkins county were on the up and up.
Believe everything you read do you? Ever hear of yellow journalism?
