3 charged with gambling in building owned by judge

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) -- Three men are charged with promoting gambling after Oak Ridge police discovered card games in a building owned by a local judge.

Interim Oak Ridge City Judge Lawrence Tunnell told the Knoxville News Sentinel he evicted the tenants after he learned of the raid. Tunnell says he had no idea there was gambling going on in the building.

Oak Ridge police arrested 35-year-old Scott William Stockstill, of Clinton, on felony promotion of gambling charges after executing a search warrant on the building on Sunday. He is free on $5,000 bond. A phone number for Stockstill appeared to be disconnected.

Jeffery Ray Smith of Kingston and William Harold Bailey of Clinton were cited with misdemeanor gambling promotion.
