How is it that a Rogersville man could be facing his 10th charge for driving on revoked license?
Assistant Attorney General Doug Godbee had no explanation Wednesday for why Ted Allen Burton Jr. hasn’t been declared a habitual motor offender before now, with nine driving on revoked convictions already to his credit. But assuming Burton is eventually declared a habitual motor offender, his next driving offense would result in a felony charge, which carries a penalty of one to two years in prison.
Burton was ordered held in the Hawkins County Jail without bond during his appearance Monday before Sessions Judge David Brand. His case is likely to be heard before the grand jury when it meets again in May.
