Brown sentenced for jail offenses
A 33 year-old Sevier County man on Tuesday pleaded guilty in Cocke County Criminal Court to several offenses he committed while an inmate in the Cocke County Jail. David Wesley Brown, 33, Kodak pleaded guilty before Judge Carter Moore to charges of possession of drug paraphernalia in the jail as well as the assault of another inmate. In November, officers say a review of video surveillance showed Brown and other inmates shooting up in their cell and he later was involved in an assault of another inmate leading to a charge of assault. Judge Moore imposed two 11 month 29 day sentences to be served consecutively, but the court released Brown on the 95 days already served with the balance on probation. The term is concurrent with a Sevier County term. Brown also faces additional charges with are pending before the Cocke County Grand Jury. Those offenses stem from a pursuit by Newport police to the North Carolina state line on I-40 in October 2017. The defendant faces a number of charges in that case including kidnapping after police say Brown led them on a chase in a stolen vehicle, at speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour. Judge Moore also issued a capias for Katilyn Miller, 27, Filbert Street, Newport. She was scheduled to be sentenced after a previous guilty plea to theft over $1,000 and a probation violation, but she didn't appear for the hearing. Asst. DA Joanne Sheldon told the court that after the guilty plea was entered, Miller went into a drug rehabilitation program but she escaped and did not turn herself into the local jail. As a result, she is to be held without bond. The grand jury also is expected to indict Miller on an escape charge. A capias also has been issued for defendant Joey Arrowood.
