Bledsoe County Sheriff , Jimmy Morris was arrested Sequatchie County by Dunlap City Police at approx 3 or 4 am for Disorderly Conduct. It’s the weekend here and i am having problems getting details and public records. I will keep pressing and let you know details as soon as I can.

Both males were tazed. Fyi this isn’t first time Mr sheriff has been involved in a fight at huddle house last time he was saying he was the sheriff and they cut him a break not this time.

Donald G. Vaughn Jr. of Tennessee was sentenced by Judge Buddy D. Perry for Sequatchie County, Bledsoe County, Franklin County, Marion County, Rhea County, and Grundy County. Donald G. Vaughn was sentenced In Dunlap Tennessee on June 1, 2012.
Another rapist indited for multiple counts of rape and incest has been plead down to 1 class c felony, plus 1 class c felony, given time served and probation. His total incarceration was less than 1 month. Part of the sentence was that while traveling out of the state of Tennessee, he has to wear a gps tracker. Read the documents and ask yourselves how can a penetration result in a c felony deal. This man is a monster, turned lose on society by Judge Buddy Perry. I would like to say more but you can say it yourself. I would not want to re-victimize the victim. You elect your judges and you can impeach them. Shoplifters and petty thieves get stiffer sentences.
Documents speak volumes and this plea agreement was unacceptable justice. Judge Thomas Graham and Prosecutor Steve Strain didn’t have to bend to the will of the accused sexual predator and Ex Sequatchie County Commissioners Barnett “Barney” Slatton’s will.
Here are the documents, I have nothing else to say but justice is perverted once again in Sequatchie County. He doesn’t even have to register as a sex offender. Maybe he should have won a prize? He did finally resign.
Please do not blame police for this. They did their job. Judge Thomas Graham and Prosecutor Steve Strain let this man go virtually almost unpunished for sex crimes.

Update on Sequatchie County Tennessee Commissioner Barnett Slatton’s new charges.
Here are the documents with the victims identities redacted. I prefer you to read the documents yourself and keep my editorial to a minimum. I have turned the comments off because of the sensitive nature of the charges. Sometimes silence is more powerful than words.
The court redacted the identities of the victims, this is the law and I agree with it. The victims are no longer victims. They are taking their power back. These are brave girls and need our support as this moves forward. Our children are not the playthings of authority figures.

*You were not arrested, booked or charged.
I have heard from sources today that Barnett Slatton would be charged again. This evening I received several more calls and emails that Sequatchie County Commissioner Barnett Slatton was booked or Re-booked on charges by TBI for 2 counts of Aggravated Statutory Rape and bonded out at 6pm on 2011-01-24. At this point we are unsure if these are new charges or old charges. I called the jail to verify and a female answered the phone and said ” We don’t know anything about this” when I asked her name she hung the phone. This seems probable as TBI had announced previously that more charges against Mr. Slatton were pending. We will keep you apprised of this situation as it develops.
This is one of them times when we have to go with what we got. We got it and we believe it to be valid. Still check back tomorrow, things change.
