Coffee County DA Under Investigation by BPR Following Complaint from Muslim Group

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott, who called Islam "an evil belief system" and said he refuses to prosecute domestic violence cases involving same-sex couples, is now under investigation by the Board of Professional Responsibility, the Tennessean reports. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which filed the complaint against Northcott on May 28, received a letter Friday from the state board confirming that an investigation has been opened. Northcott has faced increased scrutiny since he was named a special prosecutor in a case involving a Nashville activist being charged with assault on House Speaker Glen Casada.
