Trouten pleads to arson
A Bonanza Drive, Newport man on Tuesday pleaded guilty to arson and theft charges in Cocke County Circuit Court. Ricky Trouten, 30, admitted to the July 2016 arson of a residence on Wayside Alley owned by Paul and Kim Gregg. Mrs. Gregg told Judge Carter Moore that the home was being remodeled when it was torched. The defendant was ordered to pay restitution of $24,400 for the residence. It was the third time firefighters had battled flames in the unoccupied home. Trouten also pleaded guilty to the theft of an auto in March of this year. Judge Moore imposed a seven-year sentence and Trouten will be on supervised probation for six years after he serves a year in jail.
