Judge approves deal for Webb
The former deputy director of the Upper Cumberland Development District and former county executive of DeKalb County has been granted a supplemental plea deal. U.S. District Judge Waverly D. Crenshaw, Jr. accepted a supplemental plea agreement on Jan. 9 in the final act of the “Living the Dream” scandal, which began in 2015 with the indictment of Webb and his boss at the Upper Cumberland Utility District (UCDD). The two were indicted on charges including conspiracy, theft of government money, bank fraud, money laundering, and making a false statement in 2013.
