On Judge Lynn Brown

The Johnson City paper has this entertaining story on the retirement of Judge Lynn Brown from Northeast Tennessee.

One of those stories told was this: "Another memorable case was the two murder trials of Steven Allen Jones, who was convicted both times . . . . Jones became enraged after the second conviction and Brown ordered him gagged. The bailiffs used defense attorney Gene Scott’s spare tie as the gag."

Steve, when I first read this, my failing eyes read "spare tire." That was quite the visual image.
