CHARLESTON, Tenn. — For a few years the 10th Judicial District Drug Task Force had problems with its directors that left some unwilling to work with the group.

First, former Director Ken Wilson was charged with possession of cocaine in 2002 and investigators later discovered large amounts of missing drug evidence. The next director, Roxanne Blackwell, was fired after poor evidence handling gave the task force a black eye. Ms. Blackwell did not face any criminal charges.
