According to the Chattanoogan this Pickett guy probably got what he deserved. Earlier he had been transferred to juvenile court from another court because he had had sex with a female security guard while at work. That's it. Transfer him to juvenile court where the children are. Sure makes sense to me. NOT!!! Should give the wife a medal and fire the one who transferred the husband to juvenile.

I now the Wife was NOT a jailor, why no one corrected this statement, because the department thinks only of patrol and not the Jailors. Yes she was a Patrol Officer at the time.
