Lawrence County Sheriff Jimmy Brown and Captain Adam Brewer have been charged with official misconduct for allegations, including the improper release of jail inmates whose relatives made campaign contributions to the sheriff, Humphrey on the Hill reports. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation looked into problems at the department and found that inmates were allegedly granted furloughs without proper authorization by a judge or released without the proper order. Brown also allegedly violated multiple laws in his handling of confiscated moonshine.
