The state wrapped up its case Friday against Clarksville attorney Carrie Gasaway and Adams attorney Fletcher Long, who are each facing one count of extortion. Prosecutors allege that the former law partners pressured a client to pay them $50,000 because they had wrongfully taken money from another client’s account to buy a building. The defense wrapped up its case this morning with only one witness, a former judicial commissioner who the duo approached about an arrest warrant for the client who refused to pay. The Leaf Chronicle has the latest developments.
