A motion to disqualify Hamilton County District Attorney Neil Pinkston from a case involving a Gatlinburg investigator has been denied, News Channel 9 reports. Rodney Burns is facing aggravated perjury charges after testimony conflicted with his investigation into the Ooltewah rape case. Burns asked that Pinkston be disqualified from prosecuting this criminal case based on a pending civil case in which he claims Pinkston defamed him. Judge Tom Greenholtz denied the motion yesterday.
