Prosecutors announced Wednesday that some of the charges against two men in the Holly Bobo case have been dismissed, but they reserve the right to refile them. The dismissed charges are one count of tampering with evidence against John Dylan Adams, and one count of tampering with evidence and one count of accessory after the fact against Mark Pearcy. Adams was charged with tampering with evidence last month after the TBI said he confessed to it. Adams is still charged with two counts of rape, which he was indicted with on Tuesday. The TBI accused Pearcy of withholding a video that supposedly showed Bobo after she disappeared. Pearcy’s attorney e-mailed The Jackson Sun Wednesday saying, "Mr. Mark Pearcy has maintained and continues to maintain his innocence regarding the charges that were dismissed by the District Attorney's Office for the Twenty-Fourth Judicial District. Mr. Pearcy had no involvement in the disappearance of Miss Bobo and at no time had possession or knowledge of any evidence surrounding her disappearance.” The federal firearm charges are still pending against Pearcy. Mark’s brother Jeffery Pearcy still holds his charges of tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in Hamblem County, though he denies the very existence of a video of Holly Bobo. The dismissed charges against John Dylan Adams and Mark Pearcy were filed under Decatur County General Sessions Court. Charges are still actively being prosecuted against suspects Zach Adams and Jason Autry in the Bobo case. Zach Adams and Autry are charged with the murder and kidnapping of Bobo, a 20-year-old nursing student who disappeared from her Decatur County home in April 2011 and whose remains were found last month. Preliminary hearings in Decatur County General Sessions Court that had been scheduled for Monday for Mark Pearcy and next Wednesday for Dylan Adams have been canceled. Dylan Adams is still scheduled to appear in Circuit Court in Decaturville on Wednesday at 9 a.m. before Circuit Court Judge C. Creed McGinley for his initial appearance on the two counts of rape.
The Tennessee Promise program is in need of mentors. The mentors are key figures in helping guide students through the college admissions process and ensure they complete Tennessee Promise requirements in order to receive the scholarship. Mentors are tasked with contacting their assigned students every two weeks via email, phone or text as the teens transition from high school to college. They will receive training and will help enrollees sign up for classes and with required financial aid paperwork. This is about a one-hour commitment per month. The state originally hoped for 20,000 applicants, but as of now, over 35,000 have applied. The state has not yet reached its goal of 6,000 mentors.
