Civil Ouster Trial set for April for Rutherford County Sheriff

  Email   Print

The jailed Rutherford County Sheriff accused of profiting from the sale of electronic cigarettes to inmates will face an April civil ouster trial if a jury acquits him during a February criminal trial.

The Daily News Journal reports that Davidson County Chancellor William Young decided that Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold's two-day ouster trial would take place in his Nashville courtroom on April 10.

The ouster trial would not occur if the jury finds Arnold guilty in the criminal case, since he would already have been removed from office.

The plaintiffs in the ouster lawsuit convinced the chancellor to suspend Arnold without pay from his duties last month, pending the outcome of the ouster trial.

A Republican elected in August 2010, Arnold is in his second four-year term.
