Former Harriman Cop Found Guilty

Kingston, Roane County (WVLT) - A former Harriman Police officer's been found guilty of official misconduct by a Roane County judge.

Joseph Brackett pleaded no contest to the charge last Friday, but the information was just released Thursday.

TBI investigators say Brackett was writing citations and seizing drugs during traffic stops, but then not turning over the drugs or citations to Harriman Police.

He was sentenced to two years of supervised probation, community service, and over $2,000 in fines.
