KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The owners of three businesses shut down over the state's nuisance law will appear in court Monday.
About a dozen people are facing charges and at least seven were locked up for drugs after police raided the businesses.
People living around some of the stores say drugs and other illegal activity was out of control.
The owners of the Central Convenience Store, Speedmart Deli, and King's Market are expected to go to Knox County Criminal Court on Monday to explain why they should be allowed to re-open their businesses.
