London lawyer indicted

Knox Co. Attorney candidate, wife, and mother named


An attorney practicing in London — who is also a candidate for Knox County Attorney — was one of three persons named in an indictment by a Laurel grand jury on Friday.

David Jorjani, 49, and 35-year-old Cameo Cima Jorjani, also known as Cameo Skidmore, both of 282 Jorjani Dr. in Corbin, and Dr. Jean Mackay of 380 Jorjani Dr. in Corbin, were charged with tampering with physical evidence on Aug. 27, 2013.

Information surrounding the indictment is limited, although the indictment claims Jorjani, his wife Cameo and Jorjani’s mother, Dr. Jean Mackay conspired “by fabricating physical evidence with the intent that it be used in an official proceeding, or offering physical evidence in an official proceeding, knowing said evidence to be fabricated or altered.”

Attempts to contact Jorjani at his London office were unsuccessful. However, Jorjani stated to a reporter at the Corbin Times Tribune on Friday that his mother, Dr. Mackay, has “practiced medicine in Corbin for over 40 years” and “she has an exemplary record of helping the poor and disadvantaged of eastern Kentucky.”

Jorjani added if Mackay had submitted any documents to Frankfort that were not completed correctly or did not file the correct documents, she was ready to comply with any requests.

Jorjani is currently seeking the Knox County Attorney seat, one which he held previously.

An indictment is an accusation only and does not imply guilt or innocence.
