JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- A father and son are accused of double-billing for work supervising jail inmates.
Samuel Garland is the town's former jail superintendent. He is charged with stealing more than $60,000 from the Johnson City-Washington County Boys and Girls Club by billing for inmate supervision he performed as a paid city employee.
His son, David Garland, is charged with stealing more than $10,000 when he supervised inmates as part of his job with the Johnson City Parks and Recreation Department. He also was employed at East Tennessee State University. A review of his time records revealed he was being paid for working the same hours at both jobs.
He also is accused of allowing the inmates to smoke and drink.
