Be prepared for delays, extra courthouse security as Holly Bobo trial gets underway

JULY 5– With the beginning of the long-awaited Holly Bobo trial finally here, Hardin County Sheriff Sammy Davidson said he knows the added traffic at the Hardin County Courthouse “will be an inconvenience,” but that he and his deputies will do everything they can to keep things as convenient as possible for those who still have to do business at the courthouse.

He said for those having regular business at the courthouse, he recommends trying to access the building between 9-11 a.m., and again between 2-4 p.m., when the lines of people trying to enter and exit the building should be shorter.
