Christian-Newsom Updates On Vanessa Coleman And Lemaricus Davidson


Screen shot 2012-12-07 at 11.26.08 AMAsking lawyers to check their calendars, Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood has suggested the afternoon of February 1, for sentencing Vanessa Coleman.

Coleman was convicted a second time on 11/20/2012.  The charges can be found here: Vanessa Coleman Guilty of Most But Not All Charges.

Depending on which legal pundit you listen to, Coleman could receive as little as 25 years or up to 50 years.  I’m hoping for the high end, but it’s anybody’s guess as to which way Blackwood will lean.

Yesterday, Davidson’s defense team filed a motion seeking a stay of the Screen shot 2012-12-07 at 11.25.25 AMDecember 13 retrial hearing or any decision by  Senior Judge Walter Kurtz.

Doug Trant and David Eldridge, defense attorneys, want the Tennessee Supreme Court to review the order by a lower appellate court which removed Judge Blackwood from the case.

Kind of silly we are still squabbling over this issue!

Senior Judge Walter Kurtz’s response was swift as well as short and sweet…NO!!

Chief Justice Gary Wade appointed Kurtz to replace Blackwood, so Kurtz says there is no issue of recusal: “the chief justice exercised his statutory and inherent authority. This trial court is not in a position to overturn or modify the chief justice’s order.”

December 13 is quickly approaching!

    Jamie Satterfield just tweeted about an upcoming story in Tuesday’s Knoxville News Sentinel. It seems Davidson is still claiming he had a “consensual” relationship with Channon Christian.
