Leon Houston will get a new trial. Local 8 Now reports that the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals threw out his conviction last year for threatening to kill his former lawyer. Houston had been sentenced to five years in prison. According to authorities, Houston called his girlfriend and threatened to kill his lawyer, Jim Logan, while he was awaiting trial on a firearms offense which was later tossed out. According to court papers, Houston was upset that Logan had attempted to acquire part of Houston's land as compensation for working as his lawyer. Houston and his brother Rocky were found not guilty of first degree murder of a Roane County deputy in 2006. Rocky is serving a nine year sentence on federal gun charges. (Photo Courtesy WVLT)
