Former Sheriff Scheduled for Court

Unicoi County, TN — Former Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris is scheduled to make an appearance in Unicoi County’s Criminal Court today.

This is on the most recent charge of official misconduct which was returned by the Grand Jury on February 16th. Prosecutors claim that Harris used employees, supplies and sheriff’s department equipment to solicit funds to pay his attorney’s fees.

A Grand Jury indicted Harris on ten felonies back in October, including official misconduct, tampering with evidence, attempted aggravated assault, criminal simulation and theft.
