Crossville and Cumberland County emergency personnel respond to mock DUI at CCHS.
PIKEVILLE - The Special Investigations Section of the Tennessee Department of Revenue conducted the investigation that led to Sybil Marjean Stanley entering a “best interest plea” to tax evasion, a class E felony.
Judge Curtis Smith accepted Stanley’s “best interest plea” to one count of tax evasion on Wednesday. She was placed on one year of probation and granted judicial diversion. Stanley is the co-owner of Duke’s Country Store located in Pikeville. A Bledsoe County grand jury previously indicted Stanley on multiple counts of tax evasion.
“Our state’s 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 conviction highlights our rigorous and impartial administration of the state’s tax laws.”
The Department pursued this criminal case in cooperation with District Attorney General J. Michael Taylor’s office. Citizens who suspect violations of Tennessee's revenue laws should call the toll-free tax fraud hot line at (800) FRAUDTX (372-8389).
(WVLT/WTVF) -- New details have been brought to light about the AMBER Alert involving a 15-year-old Maury County teenager.
TBI officials reported that Tad Cummins kidnapped Elizabeth Thomas on March 13. District Attorney Brent Cooper told WTVF that AMBER Alert suspect Tad Cummins left behind a note for his wife on the morning of his disappearance.
Cooper would not release the details or content of the note, but told WTVF the letter was meant as a diversion to buy himself more time.
Cooper said Cummins is on blood pressure medication that may need a prescription refill soon.
Cummins and Thomas were last seen at an Oklahoma City Walmart on March 15.
Investigators told WTVF that they think Cummins was aware of the surveillance cameras and may have had plans to divert police.
Students in Cumberland County will enjoy and extra long weekend for the Easter Sunday Holiday. There will be No School on Good Friday, April 14 and students will be out of Monday, April 17, which is a Staff Development Day.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation will suspend all interstate construction work this Easter weekend in anticipation of increased holiday travel. TDOT crews and contractors will stop all road construction work that requires lane closures beginning Thursday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m. through Monday, April 17 at 6:00 a.m. This will provide maximum roadway capacity to motorists expected to travel across the state this holiday weekend. Motorists will still encounter some long term lane closures on construction projects that will remain in place. While lane closure activity will be stopped, some workers may be on-site in construction zones and REDUCED SPEED LIMITS WILL STILL BE IN EFFECT. Motorists are urged to adhere to all posted speed limits, especially in work zones, for their own safety. Slower speeds are necessary in work zones due to the temporary layout of the roadway and will be enforced.
