Official Investigation begins on Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott is now under official investigation by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations provided a copy of a letter sent by the state Supreme Court’s Board of Professional Responsibility confirming its investigation of Northcott. The council filed a complaint after the anti-Islam comments.
According to screenshots of Facebook posts, Northcott wrote Islam is “evil, violent and against God’s truth”.
He was recorded on video at a religious conference, saying he didn’t believe in gay marriage and added same-sex partners wouldn’t receive protections under domestic violence laws because he didn’t recognize the marriage.
So far Northcott has not made a comment to any member of the media.
