Multiple Charges for Wilson Cnty. Deputy

Nov 22, 2011

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn.  --  A former Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant is in jail today facing a long list of charges.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation served 39 year-old Mount Juliet resident John Patrick Edwards with multiple charges yesterday after he was indicted by both the Davidson County and Wilson County grand juries.

The charges stem from offenses going back at least five years that officials say Edwards committed while serving as a police officer.

The FBI says the level of hate crime reported by police around the country remained about the same in 2010 compared with the previous year.

The bureau says just over 6,600 hate crime incidents were reported to the FBI, up by just 24 incidents over 2009.

Tennessee apparently doing much better than the national average.

Kristin Helm, a spokesperson for the The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, says hate crimes in Tennessee decreased by about 20 percent from 2009 levels.
