In Feb. 3 Issue
Beginning this week the Times Journal will report weekly on court findings in Russell County. The findings will come from the District Court and Circuit Court and will be from the preceding week's court sessions for both civil and criminal cases.
The new feature "Court Report" will report on court cases where the finding is guilty, whether plead by the defendant or so judged. Continuations, pre-trial conferences and court date settings will not be reported, nor will case reviews unless defendant is found guilty on an additional charge.
When reporting the court news it is important that the Times Journal remain completely objective. All cases found guilty will be reported with no favoritism tolerated. This includes the staff of the Times Journal, the Russell County News-Register, or friends and family thereof.
Every attempt to report with 100 percent accuracy will be made. Due to difference in time and format of court docket filings there may be a longer delay for reporting of Circuit Court findings than for District Court findings. The date the court proceedings occurred will be made clear either at the beginning of the reportage on the court findings or within the particular case.
The new feature will begin as a weekly segment, subject to change to a monthly feature depending on best format. We expect in the future to begin reporting on land transfers and filings for weddings.
