Tennessee Highway patrol officer granted request to lower her charge
Posted on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016
A Sullivan County General Sessions judge in Tennessee last Tuesday, August 2 allowed Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Ashlee Hill’s judicial diversion that would enable her to have the failure to exercise due care conviction in relation to the vehicular accident that she caused on the John B. Dennis Highway in April 2016.
This means that her case would be expunged from her record provided that she pay the $25 fine and is not charged with any new offenses for 30 days after the incident.
Prosecutors did not agree with the judge’s ruling, with Sullivan County Assistant District Attorney Emily Hutchins saying, “The offense caused personal injury and property damage, it occurred while she was on duty, and is the second traffic accident caused by Trooper Hill while she was on duty”.
