Fentress County has officially settled with three plaintiffs in suits stemming from the conduct of former Sheriff Charles S. “Chucky” Cravens, Cravens  is currently serving time in federal prison for having sex with three female inmates in return for special treatment while the inmates were in jail.,

 The three plaintiff’s got  $100,000 each, coming at a total cost of $300,000 to the county general fund.

County Executive Jimmy Johnson said the potential cost to the  County if they didn’t settle could end up being even more than the settlement if the county ended up liable for attorneys fees and the judgment awards.  The  County opted to settle the claims and to have these cases dismissed and the matters closed.”

    If that would have happened on the streets,instead of being incarcerated it would be considered prostitution.. So what’s the difference. Those girls shouldn’t of recieved a DIME for it. They already been rewarded. Do the rest of the inmates get $$ for doing idiotic things. Those girls new what they were doing, they weren’t forced to do anything, seems they also called him. But that’s fine, we citizens of this county have a name for you girls.. bahahaha!!!
