State Rep. David Hawk, R-Greeneville, will receive no jail time after a jury found him guilty of reckless endangerment stemming from a domestic dispute with his ex-wife. Judge Paul Summers decided to grant Hawk judicial diversion and sentenced him to two years' probation and 150 hours of community service. The judge also ordered Hawk to pay $1,500 in restitution to his former wife and pay all court costs. Hawk told WJHL News Channel 11 he was glad to put the situation behind him and plans to run for re-election in 2014.
