The Board of Professional Responsibility has reprimanded Knox County Assistant District Attorney General TaKisha Fitzgerald.

The D.A.G.'s office says Fitzgerald admitted to the B.P.R. that she delayed giving information in a case that might be favorable to a criminal defendant.

Fitzgerald freely admitted she didn't provide some of the information as soon as she should have.

The D.A.G.'s office says the information involved recordings of inmate jail phone calls

District Attorney General Randy Nichols said he reviewed the matter and the information was given to the criminal defendant well before the trial date, and it wasn't used in defending the case.

Nichols praised Fitzgerald as a hard working professional who is "above board in her dealings with everyone."

Fitzgerald helped prosecute the 4 defendants in the murders of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.
