Eric Gallaher, in jail with no bond for violating the conditions of his pretrial release, asked Roane County General Sessions Court Judge Jeff Wicks for a break on Monday.
“Is there anyway I could get a work release?” he asked.
“No, sir,” Wicks responded. “I’m not allowing work release on this.”
That means Gallaher could remain jailed at least until his preliminary hearing, which is scheduled for Jan. 23.
