(Mar. 25, 2014) — 11:32 a.m. EDT – The Post & Email has just learned that a Tennessee Tenth Judicial District prosecutor has filed a motion to rescind the bond for Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III stemming from a case arising from Monroe County grand jury selection documents in late 2011.
Fitzpatrick is currently jailed at the McMinn County Justice Center after the former grand jury foreman, Jeff Cunningham, and others leveled accusations last Tuesday for which the grand jury issued indictments.
The DA’s rationale is that Fitzpatrick’s latest arrest violates the terms of the bond issued by Monroe County. Both counties are part of the Tenth Judicial District, where corruption is deep and pervasive.
As a result of this latest action, donations to Fitzpatrick’s Legal Defense Fund are crucial at this time and can be made by Paypal or check.
