Former Knox County Trustee Mike Lowe was scheduled to begin serving a one-year sentence at the Knox County jail on Saturday. Criminal Court Judge Steve Sword also ordered Lowe to pay $200,000 in restitution and serve another 10 years on probation, Knoxnews reports. A hearing on May 1 will determine whether the restitution is paid to the court or the county. Lowe, 57, pleaded guilty to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in public funds while in office.
