It has been a long road for the community since the 2005 school shooting at CCHS. It has also been a long road for Kenneth Bartley’s lawyers attempting to get him another day in court. After Knoxville Based attorney Greg Isaacs got Special Judge John Kerry Blackwood to grant Bartley a new trial the big question has been when. The answer is November 18th in Jacksboro.
Due to Blackwood’s ruling Bartley is no longer convicted of anything and is now an accused criminal. It is possible for him to be granted bond if his attorney so wishes.
