Grundy County School System fails to meet release deadline

GRUNDY COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) – Back in October, the Grundy County Director of Schools was given a month to hand over all records of reported hazing, abuse, or sexual abuse over the past five years.

Grundy County Sheriff Clint Shrum says this deadline has passed, and yet they still have not received the documents.

According to Sheriff Shrum, on Monday he did speak to Jessie Kinsey, the Director of Schools, and she told him she wanted to set up a meeting with her lawyer.

The request was made in response to charges in an attempted aggravated rape case involving five Grundy County High School football players.

Sheriff Shrum says the District Attorney will meet with Kinsey’s attorney to go over what they can and can’t release.

He also says the Department of Children’s Services partially complied with his request and they are further reviewing some reports to see if they can release it.
