Attorneys for Allison Burchett, the ex-wife of Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, plan to argue that it will be impossible for their client to get a fair trial from Knox County residents, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports. Her lawyers will ask Special Judge Don R. Ash on Thursday to either use residents from outside of Knox County as jurors or hold the trial in Nashville. Allison Burchett is charged with identity theft and computer fraud for attacks against Nicole Strickland, the estranged wife of the defendant's current boyfriend.
