Placeholder Image
Felony charges have been leveled against Smithville Mayor Jimmy Poss and his son, Anthony, charging them with theft for the mayor’s hiring of his son to maintain the city’s golf course. The indictments were handed down by the DeKalb County grand jury Monday after they heard evidence uncovered during an extensive probe by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation that began this past March. Along with the theft count, charging theft over $2,500, Mayor Poss has also been indicted on the charge of official misconduct.
