Multiple defense attorneys have filed motions in Catoosa County Superior Court alleging prosecutors are holding back on information about the Northwest Georgia FBI sex crime task force, and they want details about a civilian's involvement in their clients' arrests.

After a police officer was fired two weeks ago, an investigation revealed Angela Russell was working on the Northwest Georgia Crimes Against Children task force with FBI Special Agent Ken Hillman, and that she may have been allowed to slap the handcuffs on suspects.
