Sneedville TN police chief sentenced to jail time after pleading to charges for giving 14yr-old girl pot from evidence

A former upper East Tennessee police chief accused of giving marijuana to a teenage girl and putting pressure on a juror pleaded guilty to criminal charges this week and was sentenced to four months in jail.

Former Sneedville Police Chief Charlie H. Dunsmore, 64, had been slated to go to trial next week on charges of official misconduct, theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and improper influence of a juror.

But during a court hearing Monday before 3rd Judicial District Criminal Court Judge John Dugger, Dunsmore pleaded guilty to all four criminal charges and was sentenced to four months in jail to be followed by eight months of supervised probation.
