Councilman Jesse Kerley Not A Supect in Sign Theft
Peg Broadcasting News Thursday October 6, 2016

Councilman Jesse Kerley has been ruled out as a suspect in the recent theft of signs from a home on Mockingbird Drive. Those signs belong to J.R. Blankenship. According to police reports, a witness saw two men removing signs from the home and began recording them on video. The witness told police that he thought the suspects were Councilman Kerley and his father Jerry Kerley. The witness even captured the suspects’ vehicle tags on tape and those tags came back to a truck owned by Jerry Kerley, who is the director of Crossville’s Water Resources Department. The other suspect has been identified as William Harwell. Both Kerley and Harwell have been issued a summons for misdemeanor theft and will appear in General Session Court at a future date.

The “Blankenship” signs on Mockingbird Drive were reportedly part of the issue that resulted in the early June scuffle at City Hall between Pete Souza and Jesse Kerley.

Councilman Kerley was charged with assault and his court date was continued to October 6, 2016. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor and carries a maximum term of not more than 11 months, 29 days in prison and up to $2,500 fine.
