MAN SHOT AT BY WOMAN IN ROCKWOOD LAST WEEK NOW CHARGED AS SEX OFFENDER

The man involved in a shooting in Rockwood last week, in which no one was actually hit, may have escaped Linda Flannagan’s bullets, but he couldn’t escape being arrested.

On Friday, 64-year-old Kent Booher was arrested by deputies and charged with five counts of failure to register as a sex offender, and three counts of solicitation of a person under the age of 18. Booher, according to the sheriff’s department, allegedly phoned whom he thought was a 16-year-old girl, seeking sexual favors. He was actually talking to an undercover cop.

Last week 58-year-old Linda Flannagan of Rockwood fired several rounds from her .357 Magnum at Booher because she was upset that her daughter was in a car with him at the Heritage Hills Apartments in Rockwood. Flanagan was charged with attempted murder. Flannagan was said not to have wanted her 27-year-old daughter with Booher because of his 2014 conviction of the statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl. Booher, a disbarred Loudon County attorney, was supposed to register as a sex offender. Now he faces more jail time.

Booher is out of jail on $22,000 bond; he’s due in court May 14.

Flannagan’s bond was set at $65,000; she’s got an April 30 court date.
