An Anderson County assistant district attorney has declined to prosecute former Knox County Commissioner R. Larry Smith for sexual battery, although the victim was “very credible,” Knoxnews reports. Smith was accused of inappropriately touching a woman in her home while he was selling insurance in February. ADA Emily Abbott said she didn’t think a case could be proved against Smith beyond a reasonable doubt. Smith denies the allegations.
