(( When Dr. Knox emerged from court Halloween night, he knew it wasn't over, despite a verdict of NOT guilty on 45 counts. Neither he nor his attorneys expected he'd face a whole new indictment, though. The prosecutor said at the time that the next trial would focus solely on the charges the last jury failed to resolve. [1:42:40] ((BUT ULTIMATELY THOSE HAVE TO BE TRIED, THOSE HAVE TO BE RESOLVED SOMEHOW. So you're saying they will be re-indicted? NOT RE-INDICTED. THE PRESENT INDICTMENT WILL GO BACK TO TRIAL, DIFFERENT JURY. THE REMAINING CHARGES HAVE TO BE TRIED.)) [RUNS:10] Apparently the government strategy changed in the intervening two and a half months. The new indictment does not name the Dr.'s medical practice, just Knox himself, Office Manager Bev Boone and Licensed Professional Counselor Bill James. It cites three patients whose use of OxyContin, Methadone or Morphine caused serious injury or death. Dr. Knox is also charged with perjury for his trial testimony, when he said patient Chris Ann Brown told him she would abort her baby, if she couldn't get pain relief. [1:53:30] ((WE WILL BE PREPARED TO DEFEND ANY ALLEGATIONS THEY BRING AGAINST DR. KNOX AGAIN.)) [RUNS:06] This new indictment comes on the very day that a status conference in the case had been set and then postponed until next week. The Judge was still considering a motion for acquittal on the old charges. If Judge Sam Wilson had dismissed any of them, the government wouldn't have been allowed to bring them up again. A new trial is set to begin April 13th. Keith Humphry NEWS 7.))
