Fall Festivals and Halloween are supposed to be a time for kids to enjoy costumes, candy and fun. But this time of year can also make children easy prey for sex offenders. Thatís why in Tennessee the Board of Probation prohibits registered sex offenders from participating in Halloween, Fall Festivals, Haunted Houses, Hay Rides, Corn Mazes or any other seasonal activities. Such people are not allowed to display fall or Halloween decorations at their homes. They are not allowed to wear costumes, go trick or treating, or hand out candy. Registered sex offenders must also keep their doors closed on Halloween, turn porch lights off, and no one in the home of the offender may answer the door for trick or treaters. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Sex Offender Map shows around 90 offenders in Cumberland County. According to city-data.com, there are 101 registered sex offenders in Cumberland County. For a list of safe Fall and Halloween activities check out the Community Calendar on 1025wowcountry.com and mix993.com
Crossville, Tenn. - The Special Investigations Section of the Tennessee Department of Revenue conducted the investigation that led to Mondayís arrest of Mukesh Bhikhabhai Patel, 46. Patel is the owner of Citgo Food Market in Crossville. Special Agents of the Tennessee Department of Revenue arrested Patel at his residence in Crossville. Bond was set at $20,000. Monday, the Cumberland County Grand Jury indicted Patel on eight Class E felony counts of sales tax evasion. The indictment charges that Patel willfully attempted to evade $17,044.18 in sales tax due from November 2008 through December 2011. "Tennessee's tax structure depends on taxpayers voluntarily complying with the laws," Revenue Commissioner Richard Roberts said. "Taxpayers who collect but intentionally do not remit sales tax, breach the public's trust and violate the criminal laws of the state. This case underscores our commitment to rigorous and fair administration of Tennessee's tax laws." If convicted, Patel could be sentenced up to a maximum of two years in the state penitentiary and fined up to $3,000 for each of the tax evasion counts.
Prosecution of this criminal case was pursued by the Department in cooperation with District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway'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).
