JOHNSON CITY – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has led to the indictment of a former Johnson County deputy on forgery charges.
In April 2016, at the request of 1st District Attorney General Tony Clark, TBI Special Agents began investigating allegations of forgery against Adam Scott Guinn (DOB 8-18-81). At that time, Guinn was a deputy with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. During the course of the investigation, Agents learned that Guinn returned paperwork showing that he had personally served three individuals with subpoenas on March 5, 2016. Further investigation revealed that Guinn failed to serve the subpoenas and notify witnesses as he initially claimed.
Last week, the Johnson County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Guinn with three counts of Forgery. Today, Guinn turned himself in to authorities and was booked into the Johnson County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
