Back in December the Campbell County Grand Jury indicted a trio of deputies in connection with an alleged assault at the Campbell County Jail.

On Tuesday Justin Crabtree, Dakota Williams, and Sean Brown enter pleas of not guilty at their arraignment hearing.

An investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation led to the indictment after 8th District Attorney General Jared Effler requested an investigation into an alleged assault on a prisoner who was being booked into the jail. The investigation revealed an alleged assault by Justin Crabtree against a suspect being booked into the jail. It also revealed that Dakota Williams and Sean Brown were present during the assault.

The Grand Jury charged Crabtree with one count of Official Oppression and Aggravated Assault. Williams and Brown were both charged with Official Oppression, Official Misconduct and Assault by way of presentment.
