Hawkins County General Sessions Judge J. Todd Ross and Clerk of Courts Sarah L. Davis give the Rogersville Review their final thoughts on the contempt of court charge that threatened to land Davis in jail and significantly impact the operations of the court. Ross maintains he did the right thing in having Davis arrested after she initially refused to provide a collections clerk for the courtroom. For her part, Davis says she still has a lot of questions but is grateful for the chance to tell her side of the story, which she does in detail in the statement provided to the paper.
