It will take Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp longer than expected to reach his verdict for a former Johnson City employee accused of abusing his position in the economic development department to earn personal money because of computer problems.

Cupp, who planned to make his ruling in the case today, announced in court Tuesday that technology problems have stalled his work and research in Davis’ case.

Davis, 56, 1915 Woodland Drive, is charged with official misconduct, theft over $60,000 and 20 counts of forgery for allegedly diverting housing improvement contracts from the city to a company his wife owned and he operated using the name D.L. Neal.
