Defense attorney Chris Cawood said he’s not surprised by the latest arrest of registered sex offender James Tiegs.
“They’ve been trying to find something on him since we won that trial,” Cawood said. “They were really upset that they lost.”
Tiegs, 52, was tried last July in Roane County Criminal Court for aggravated sexual battery. Cawood was his attorney.
The jury who heard the case found Tiegs guilty of misdemeanor assault.
He was sentenced to six months’ probation in November.
