A federal jury found a Knox County magistrate not guilty this week. Magistrate Jerry 'Rabbit' Cox's trial began earlier this week in London. A grand jury indicted him in October 2016 for allegedly using county workers to complete private projects. Between June 2013 and June 2014, Cox allegedly had more than $5,000 worth of gravel and culverts installed on private property.
