, how long has he been doing this to us.he is a theif and he would have kept on , if he hadn,t got caught, he won,t spend any time in jail, and does he get to keep that job, or get impeached.

cOULD THIS THEIVING BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE BEATING OF A PAST DOT EMPLOYEE, i MEAN AFTER ALL WE TALKING ABOUT theives. nOW HE TRYING TO SUE THE COUNTY FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. Id say hes been paid wouldn't you. If he was steeling also. Its us the tax payers that get the wrong end of the stick.As for the drugs I personally think all county and state workers should be tested without prior notice , then double back and retest. OH maybe 30 min later.The Blevins should bee deeply investigated as well as the royden boys they worked for Butch baby for years.

After we had our blow up with him, I went to complain to the county lawyer, the county executive and the various people you deal with to get to the top. They ALL told me he was untouchable, some kind of loophole that did not put him under county jurisdiction, and the state told me he was not under their jurisdiction, etc. I could not get any justice for what he said and implied, but he was finally brought down by his own hand. That's a sweet bit of justice!! I hope victims of his start coming out of the woodwork to report further on him abusing his position. I think you are going to see his cronies start putting some distance between them and him.

The Sevier county road superintendant Jonas Smelcer has done this for over twenty years. This year a huge file against him was presented to DA Jimmy Dunn and the TBI and NOTHING is being investigated. When you live in a tourist town, the law looks the other way to avoid bad press. See www.seviercorruption.com for blunt details

Well, the highway supervisor here in Fentress has all ready been indited by a grand jury, arrested on the charges and had a $10,000 bail set. It appears our guy has been investigated by TBI and enough was there to present to the jury.

Seems like TBI may be opening their eyes to this corrupt little town. Maybe he could make a deal to expose more of it here.

I think when they are an official here everything including setting bail should be done in another county. That way hopefully only evidence would come into play and they would not go light on him because of who he is. Or convict him because they don't like him. I do hope they go into his personal income. To see just how much wealth he has accumulated and make him account for any that is not part of his regular income.
