Theft Charges in Nashville Against RuCo Commissioner Retired

  Email   Print

Davidson County District Attorney General Torry Johnson has reached an agreement with Rutherford County Commissioner Matthew Young to retire felony theft charges against him. Young was charged with two counts of felony theft for his alleged involvement in a concert ticket scheme. A grand jury indictment out of Davidson County suggested that Young sold thousands of dollars’ worth of fake concert tickets totaling more than $60,000. Also indicted in Nashville were 43-year old Kenneth Cooper and 66-year old Harvey Felsher of Mississippi. According to the D-A's office, the charges against Young and Felscher were retired for a year after they agreed to help in the investigation against Cooper. He will also have to pay over 13-thousand dollars to victims of the scheme. If the money isn't paid back to the victims or Young doesn't cooperate in the investigation, the charges could be re-filed. The District 16 Rutherford County Commissioner lost his bid for re-election in May to Phillip Dodd in the GOP primary.
