WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Evidence in the case against a former Washington County, Tennessee Assistant District Attorney has not yet been considered by a grand jury.
Investigators arrested William McManus in May 2020 and charged him with bribery of a public servant.
McManus is accused of discussing reducing criminal charges in exchange for sexual favors.
McManus did not appear for a scheduled court appearance today, but he was represented by his attorney Gene Scott.
The Knox County District Attorney’s office is prosecuting the case.
As of Wednesday, prosecutors say that a federal indictment against McManus is still a possibility.
The grand jury is expected to present its findings in the case on June 1, the scheduled date for McManus’ next court appearance.
