An attorney for Hamilton County Commissioner Tim Boyd has requested that Circuit Court Judge Andrew Freiberg dismiss an extortion charge against his client, who appeared in court today for his arraignment, Chattanoogan.com reports. Attorney Lee Davis said the commissioner committed no criminal act when he and East Ridge Mayor Brent Lambert spoke during two phone calls that were secretly recorded. Boyd defeated Lambert in Tuesday’s Republican primary election for District 8 commissioner, despite the fact that he was arrested last month.
