RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold is against a motion filed by two other defendants in the ongoing e-cigarettes case that would push back their upcoming trial.

Arnold, who has been jailed in Kentucky since the end of September, wants his February trial to go on as scheduled.

According to his attorney, Sheriff Arnold is being held in solitary confinement and has “extremely limited privileges.”

Arnold is expected to remain jailed until his case goes to trial. The charges against him, and two others, stem from the sale of e-cigarettes inside the Rutherford County jail after Arnold listed the company as a source of income.

If a judge does grant a continuance, Arnold wants the case to be severed.
