With a trial set to start Monday, attorneys representing former Knox County trustee Mike Lowe along with Ray Mubarak and Delbert Morgan were in court Thursday asking the charges be dismissed because documents needed for their defense were destroyed when Lowe's successor took office, WATE reports. The three were charged with theft more than two years ago stemming from an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, state auditors and the county district attorney's office that alleged the group funneled money through the trustee's office to a company that Mubarak owned.
