“Former Crockett County Sheriff’s Office deputy Calvin Fields pleaded guilty to counts of distribution of cocaine and possession of a firearm during drug trafficking in U.S. District Court on Friday.
As part of the plea agreement, Fields waived his right to appeal his sentence, meaning the sentence he is given will not change.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents became aware of possible public corruption in Crockett County in January, according to the facts presented in the case.
Fields was accused of using his patrol car to provide mobile security for a person identified as a Gangster Disciples member, according to court documents. The person was not identified in court records due to fear of retaliation.
Court documents say Fields provided security and protection for the gang member as they moved narcotics throughout Crockett County, and in exchange received cash payments between $100 and $800.
Fields also drove his patrol car behind the person’s vehicle to ensure the drugs were delivered safely, according to court documents.
A meeting between an informant and Fields was arranged at a gas station in Crockett County to see if Fields would assist the person in delivering two ounces of cocaine to a location in Bells in exchange for $400, which was photocopied money, according to court documents.
Fields was wearing his Crockett County Sheriff’s Office uniform and had a handgun at the time of the meeting, according to court documents.
He was later arrested and admitted his actions to agents.”

So, they looked at this guy and thought he was A-okay. No alarms or whistles when he was interviewed. And why was that? Because it is who they are. They are a personality type and are one and the same. Think you are above the law? Good, You are one of us. Of course when they get busted they can no longer cover and have to cut them free. This is the caliber of the individuals that choose this type of employ. No one just wakes up one morning and says ” I want to control people for a living” Best of luck to you the next time you get pulled over. You never know who is behind that badge and gun.
“MEMPHIS, TENN (localmemphhis.com) – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained an indictment for a former police officer who is now facing charges of Theft and Official Misconduct.
At the request of 22nd District Attorney General Brent Cooper, TBI Agents began investigating Robert Jason Gann in January.
During the investigation, Agents developed information that, while a police officer for the Waynesboro Police Department, Gann pawned two department-issued weapons in Lawrenceburg on several occasions.
The final time Gann pawned the handgun, the investigation revealed he did not pick it up, and it was eventually sold by the pawn shop.
Gann resigned his job with the police department before information about this incident surfaced and took a job at the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department.
That agency’s leaders subsequently terminated his employment when it learned of the accusations involving Gann.”
This is what happens when cops begin to think that they are better than those that they serve. This is the action, not of a public servant, but rather a domestic warrior carrying on a fight against corrupt citizenry. The cop, pictured below, gets to now become what he hated so much. Hopefully some other cop on a power trip will kick his teeth in while he is in custody. Karma, while sometimes a long time in coming, can often be a real bitch.
“An Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy has been arrested after forcing a suspect to jump off a roof during a confrontation in March.
James Cook, 33, was arrested Thursday and is being charged with 2nd degree assault.
According to a press release, it all started with a domestic violence call in Brighton on March 21.
The suspect, Alejandro Martinez, 24, ran from authorities and climbed onto the rooftop of an outbuilding nearby.
Police say he was refusing direct orders to come down so Cook, an Adams County K9 handler, was sent to the roof with a dog to attempt to take Martinez into custody.
Witnesses told police that during the ensuing confrontation, Cook physically forced Martinez off the roof.
Martinez fell and was taken into custody on the ground. He was transported to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.”

A federal jury on Wednesday awarded a man more than $13 million after he sued thecity, seven Chicago police officers and two Cook County prosecutors over his conviction for the 1992 slayings of Jeffrey Lassiter and Sharon Haugabook.
Tears streamed down Deon Patrick’s face, and he clutched a photograph of his late mother that he wears around his neck, as Judge Ronald Guzman announced the award. Patrick wore a bright-green sweater vest to the courtroom and hugged his attorneys after the verdict was read.
“I feel like my day has finally come,” Patrick said minutes after the hearing. “They tricked me into believing it was over in 2014.
“To sit there for 25 years, and then to have to go through this all over again, and listen to the lies all over again,” he said after five weeks of testimony and more than two days of jury deliberation. “They made me relive it.”
Patrick spent two decades in prison before Cook County prosecutors dismissed the murder charges against him in 2014. He filed his lawsuit that same year.
The verdict comes four months after a federal jury awarded $22 million to Nathson Fields, an ex-El Rukn gang member who spent more than a decade on Death Row only to be cleared of a 1984 double murder.
Patrick’s case went to trial March 6 in front of Judge Guzman. Patrick’s lawyer, Stuart Chanen, told jurors during closing arguments Monday there was no physical evidence linking Patrick to the slayings.
“They fabricated evidence against [Patrick],” Chanen said of the police and prosecutors targeted by the lawsuit. “They coerced his confession. They manipulated evidence.

Corrupt lying cops, prosecutors and judges. It takes all of these to commit a travesty of that magnitude. From top to bottom it took hundreds of people to perpetrate this. But once the system has become focused on someone it has millions of dollars and manpower to convict. All prosecutors care about are their conviction rate so they can further their career. They are no better than the cops and are actually the ones who empower their misdeeds
Amazing…Lying cops. Who ever would have guessed? What this story isn’t telling you is that the Sheriff of the very same Dept. was forced to retire to avoid prosecution about a year ago for………. You guessed it; Lying under oath. The difference is that the Sheriff was lying about a different battery case where his deputies had beat the holy dog snot out of a guy who surrendered. Real heroes, huh? Just because they wear blue. Well that blue privilege needs to be revoked. Do not ever assume that a cop is telling the truth. They are just as likely to lie if not more so than the average person. They have to do it all the time to cover their and their buddies butts and make stories fit the narrative they tell.
“A veteran deputy with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office has resigned after the prosecutor’s office announced it would no longer rely on testimony from him after truthfulness in question.
On Thursday, sheriff’s office administrators requested MCSO K9 Deputy Joshua Parker be at the MCSO Central Operations Center for the purpose of terminating his employment with the MCSO. Prior to being terminated, Parker submitted his resignation and has been separated from the agency. The events giving rise to Sheriff Billy Woods’ intention to terminate Parker arose from a Feb. 13 letter from State Attorney Brad King, advising that Parker’s testimony would no longer be relied upon by his office. The SAO discovered that Parker was untruthful in two recent cases and they could no longer accept Parker’s testimony to be relied upon for material evidence in any future case, intake, deposition, hearing or trial unless his testimony was corroborated by some other reliable evidence.
The SAO found that Parker gave false testimony during a deposition, and during the subsequent state felony battery trial, of former MCSO deputy Jesse Terrell. Upon receiving the letter of the SAO’s findings and determination, Sheriff Woods suspended Parker with pay. Sheriff Woods ultimately made the decision to terminate Parker from the agency, citing the insurmountable issues the State Attorney’s Office vocalized along with the liability and public concern that would be associated with keeping Parker as a deputy sheriff.“
