Knox County Court Clerk Readies Defense Against Critics

Knox County Criminal Court clerk Joy McCroskey said yesterday she is preparing to fire back at critics and spend the week getting to the bottom of the myriad problems raised by Knox judges, Knoxnews reports. “If we made mistakes, we’re going to admit that,” McCroskey said in a News Sentinel interview. “If someone else made the mistakes, I’m going to show that too. I’ll have an answer for (critics) and will prepare a statement.” McCroskey has declined to discuss specifics of the internal goings on in her office in the wake of the controversy surrounding her staff’s work.
