Not only was he taking thier money he also used his position to try to get thier girlfriends to go out with him. He did this to my son and then violated him when the girl didnt cooperate. We still have the text messages saved that he sent her asking for pics and suggesting meeting spots. These were reported to his supervisor in Knoxville over two years ago, but whos going to believe the word of a felon over the probation officer. Seems like the investigation should go a little deeper than just Officer Debord and be alittle bit far streching. As far as county probation in Sevier County goes everyone around here knows if you get arrested you will be placed on probation because it pads the pockets of the judges.

This does not surprise me in the least. Too much control is given to these probation officers...very little education is required to become PO. Scumbags on a power trip.Tracy Henry is the worst.

It was a verizon phone and the POs phone number. I have no reason to lie. My son did his time and is not on probation anymore. Anyway, the point was the guy used his position of power for uses other than his job. Since he was arrested we can assume he was crooked and used his office for his own personal gain.

I hope he gets a chance to get in touch with his feminine side in prison.
