Former Knox County attorney David Jorjani appeared in court Friday for a pretrial conference with his wife and mother to only have another pretrial conference date set.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Jackie Steele voiced his objections to a request of particulars submitted on behalf of Jorjani and his family in Laurel County Circuit Court. The particulars to which Steele objected concerned a request for a witness list and names of those who were present during a statement that was made. The request for particulars also asked for a specific time and location in which the alleged actions by Jorjani and his family were committed.
Judge Tom Jensen was informed by Jorjani’s attorney that they could not make a solid defense on Jorjani’s behalf if they did not know who is being accused for what actions.
Jensen decided that he needed more time to look into the particulars request and the objections that were made to it. Another pretrial conference was set for Aug. 15.
Jorjani, his wife, Cameo Cima Jorjani, and his mother, Dr. Jean Mackay, were all indicted by a Laurel County grand jury back in March. They were charged with tampering with physical evidence after they allegedly fabricated physical evidence “with the intent that is be used in an official proceeding, or (offered) physical evidence in an official proceeding, (allegedly) knowing said evidence to be fabricated or altered,” according to the indictment.
The charges against the family allegedly occurred Aug. 27.
In April they all entered a plea of “not guilty” in Laurel County Circuit Court.

THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
