The former Norris police chief Samuel Ogburn, is facing time in jail in an ongoing case involving aggravated perjury and forgery charges. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents began investigating allegations against Samuel Ogburn, 44, in September of 2019. In May 2019, agents found that while serving as Chief of the Norris Police Department, Ogburn falsified a firearms training document and submitted it to the Tennessee Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission. Ogburn resigned his position shortly after the allegations surfaced, and turned himself in.
Ogburn was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail followed by 11 months and 29 days of probation.
