This business upheld a thief and denied the crimes he committed against a defenseless female client.

ROGERSVILLE — The wife of former Hawkins County sessions and juvenile judge James “Jay” Taylor was ordered earlier this month to pay more than $63,000 to the plaintiff in a civil lawsuit filed against the couple last year.

The order, filed in Hawkins County Circuit Court on Nov. 9, was signed by Sevier County Circuit Judge Rex Henry Ogle, who was appointed to hear the case of Doris Colleen Burns versus James Taylor and his wife, Julia North Taylor.

In December of last year, Burns filed a lawsuit against James Taylor alleging that on Nov. 12, 2008, he borrowed $65,000 from Burns, who was his client in pending civil litigation. The note was reportedly cosigned by Julia Taylor.

Ogle’s order states that based on Julia Taylor’s failure to reply to the allegations through counsel, or pro se, the court entered a judgment against her for a total of $63,341, which includes Burns’ attorney fee and court costs.

Kingsport attorney David Darnell is listed as Julia Taylor’s attorney in Ogle’s order.

A message left for Darnell by the Times-News Monday seeking comment about the judgment was not returned.

James Taylor was ordered to pay Burns $50,000 in restitution stemming from the same situation when he pleaded guilty Oct. 12 in Hawkins County Criminal Court to six felony theft charges.

Those theft charges stemmed from money stolen from former clients in Taylor’s private law practice as well as theft of funds he raised under the pretext of hanging historical documents including the Ten Commandments on the wall of the Hawkins County Justice Center.

Morristown attorney Paul Whetstone, who represents Burns in her lawsuit, said the criminal restitution and civil judgment overlap.

“We’re not double dipping, but we now have two courts that have ordered these funds be paid to my client,” Whetstone said.“That’s two courts the defendants will have to answer to if these funds aren’t paid.”

Whetstone noted, however, that Burns isn’t through with the Taylors.

In February, Burns amended her original lawsuit to include an additional $16,000 she claims James Taylor “extorted” from her in 2010. She is also seeking “unspecified damages” in that amended suit.

The amended lawsuit claims that he threatened Burns with a false criminal charge and prison to intimidate her into paying him $16,000, which Taylor allegedly told Burns was to be used as bribe money.

The lawsuit alleges that in his private practice Taylor was representing Burns in an adoption case involving a child.

Taylor allegedly told Burns that the guardian ad litem in that case was going to place criminal charges against her for “selling a baby.” He allegedly threatened that the consequence could be a prison sentence for Burns, who allegedly paid Taylor the $16,000.

Taylor served as Hawkins County juvenile judge from 2006 until August of 2011, when he was appointed sessions judge by the County Commission. He resigned his sessions judge seat in May, shortly before being indicted in Davidson County and later in Hawkins County on theft charges.

In addition to his October guilty pleas, Taylor pleaded guilty in September in Davidson County to another six felony theft charges stemming from fraudulent payment claims he made from the Tennessee Administrative Office of Courts.

James Taylor is currently incarcerated in the Davidson County Jail awaiting an expected early release on a three-year jail sentence, after which he will remain on probation until 2028.

Why not pay this money back? She too had her hand in the cookie jar. One would have thought she had more to do with all this, other than a cosigner and not just the innocent wife of a corrupt Lawyer and Judge. It's not like it was a one time thing, this went on for years. I know if had been in another place, she would have been charged for Accessory after the Fact.

Maybe she was a participant in spending the money maybe she wasn't. Maybe she was involved in a criminal conspiracy to some of his charges, maybe she wasn't. There was way too much going on for me not to beleive that there was only one person involved in criminal activity in this family.

Let's just say they all made their bed of roses and thorns. They stole from defenseless women - plain and simple so the famous Mrs. Julia North Taylor should have to pay up too.

How shameful. Do people really want to do business with these kind of people? What happened to them being an family owned, ethical, Christian business? Guess they became Cross Thug Shop when Tricky Vicky and Taylor took over.

JH Cross has been the "big dog" at Spires Chapel as long as I have known him (50+ years). There is absolutely nothing that happens at Spires Chapel without JH's approval.

When the Reedemed were singing JH was the final word with them. When JH spoke John North asked how high on the way up. They went where JH said they could go. JH ALWAYS reminded John his first duty was to Spires Chapel not out on the road singing.

The list goes on and on where good ole JH is either the top dog or he won't be involved at all. Think what you will about JH but I promise you NOTHING went on without his knowledge

Didn't this woman Vicky used to sing with them? Wasn't she the blonde lady that sang kinda nasal sounding and slightly off key?

Not sure but Julie "Barbie" North sang with the group as well as her daddy John. There was some guy that sang with them that teaches (or used to teach) school.

At one time Tony McGee sang with them until he saw the writing on the wall and started his own group. I understand their parting ways was not pretty. I heard they threatened lawsuits etc. when he left. That's some good God fearing people there now.

Don't you remember they had a doll made that looked like her and they tried to sell them? You can't make up all the Cross-North-Taylor stuff. It's too unbelievable. As for boycotting Cross Flowers, if Vickie had a true friend, they would tell her it's time to shut up claiming Taylor was set up. She's killing the business out there all by herself.

Wasn't Laura Mease the only one with talen in the group? What ever happened to her? I heard her sing once and it was beautiful. Maybe they should go back to their roots of the true gospel and bring Laura on board.

While y'all are at it, don't forget which commissioners voted for Taylor - including all 3 from North/Crosses' District 4.

TBI isn't done investigating the bribery allegations from that little boondoggle, either.
