Duluth, MN (KDAL) - Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell is caught in a relationship that might be considered inappropriate. At least that's what her parents thought when they took out a retraining order against Scannell who was a friend, mentor and tennis coach of the young girl. She is seventeen.
Scannell allegedly told the girl's mother that he and her daughter had a relationship that had become physical but not intimate. He said they talked about getting married, having children and moving to Australia. When asked by her mother if she loved Scannell, the girl said she didn't think so.
You might recall that Scannell was the Cook County Attorney who was shot and seriously wounded a year ago by an alleged sex offender he had prosecuted.
