Another public defender was appointed to represent Rutherford County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Joe Russell.

A federal judge in Nashville on Friday granted the request since his previous public defender was changing jobs and could no longer represent Russell.

Russell along with Sheriff Robert Arnold and Arnold's uncle, John Vanderveer, face a 14 count federal indictment, alleging honest services fraud; mail fraud; wire fraud; bribery concerning federal programs; extortion under color of official right; obstruction of justice; and conspiracy.
