Tennessee Sheriff Arrested

Today the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested the Jackson County Sheriff, two Deputies, and two former Correctional Officers. The officers have been accused of having inappropriate sexual conduct with inmates.

Throughout the years I have found myself both representing officers in Court and representing citizens who were mistreated by the government. I guess it is no big surprise that you learn fairly quickly that there are good and bad folks in any profession. I still believe that most people are good. I also believe that a majority of the police, sheriffs and other public officials are good. That they take these jobs not for personal glory or a modest paycheck but to make the world a better place. However, when an officer betrays the public trust and uses their power for selfish personal gain I believe their punishment should be swift and severe.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
