Former Jackson Police Officer Gets Judicial Diversion

ACKSON, Tenn. – A deal has been made that keeps a former Jackson police officer out of prison, and his record clean.

On Monday, 29-year-old Travis Hass, who was indicted last May for allegedly lying about who shot him two years ago, cut a deal that has some Jackson residents upset.

On June 3, 2010, Hass reported he had been shot by two men while on patrol in front of the L. Dalton Wholesale Meat Co. on Lawrence Switch Road, but state investigators later charged him with filing a false report, saying he shot himself.

On Monday, Hass did not enter a plea, but what is called a pretrial diversion – an option for some first time offenders in Tennessee.
