Former Morgan County Bail Bondsman Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday January 24, 2017

A former Morgan County bail bondsman has pleaded guilty to tax evastion. The Special Investigations Section of the Tennessee Department of Revenue conducted the investigation that led to Mondays guilty plea of James Maxey Rose II to tax evasion, a Class E felony. Rose, 40, was a former bail bondsman for Cumberland Bail Bonding.

Judge Jeffery Wicks accepted Roses guilty plea to one count of tax evasion. He was ordered to pay a $50 fine, a $50 contribution to the Fraud and Economic Crime Fund, court costs, and $1,164 in restitution to the State of Tennessee. Rose was placed on one year supervised probation and granted judicial diversion.

Our states tax structure depends on voluntary taxpayer compliance to remit money collected from customers, Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. Taxpayers who fail to remit collected taxes violate the public trust and the criminal laws of Tennessee. This guilty plea highlights our rigorous and impartial administration of the states tax laws.

Cumberland County Sheriffs Office Increases DUI Enforcement During Super Bowl Weekend
Submitted: Sheriff Casey Cox/Peg Broadcasting News Monday January 23, 2017

The Cumberland County Sheriffs Office is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to enhance impaired-driving enforcement during the Super Bowl weekend (Friday, Feb. 3 Sunday, Feb. 5). The THSOs Booze It & Lose It campaign is a statewide mobilization to prevent impaired-driving crashes, injuries and fatalities.

We cant stand to see this tragic loss of life again and again, said Sheriff Casey Cox. The hardest part of the job is making that house call and telling a family that their loved one is gone because someone chose to drink and drive. Thats why, during Super Bowl weekend, we will show zero tolerance for drunk drivers on the road. Please find a safe and sober ride.
During Super Bowl weekend last year, there were 76 crashes and eight fatalities related to impaired driving across Tennessee. This year, motorists will see increased sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.

A single DUI conviction can cost an individual $5,000 or more, in addition to jail time. An offender could also be required to attend drug and alcohol treatment or to install an ignition interlock device inside his/her vehicle. Any penalty imposed by law pales in comparison to the injury or death of a loved one.

 


Lifetime Handgun Carry Permit Drops in Price
tn.gov Sunday January 22, 2017

Tennessee citizens with a valid handgun carry permit now have the option to upgrade to a lifetime permit for a lower cost. In 2016, the 109th General Assembly lowered the renewal fee on lifetime handgun carry permits from $500 to $200. The new fee for an original permit is now $100, and the permit is now issued for eight years.

If you currently have a permit with an expiration date, and would like to upgrade to a lifetime permit, you can now pick up an application at any driver services center and pay the $200 upgrade fee at any time. Handgun carry permits are processed at any full service driver services center. If youre applying for the lifetime carry permit without first obtaining an original handgun carry permit, the fee will be $300.
