Kingston attorney Terry L. Stevens II picked up a petition on Monday to run for public defender for the 9th Judicial District. Roane County News suggests that the move may create a potential conflict of interest because Stevens currently works as a prosecutor for the 9th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office. District Attorney General Russell Johnson said Stevens has contacted the U.S. General Counsel for the federal Hatch Act to request a formal opinion on the issue.
