NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in a prisoner being charged with threatening the Assistant District Attorney who prosecuted his original case.

At the request of 20th District Attorney General Glenn Funk, on January 8th, TBI Agents, with the assistance of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference, began investigating allegations of retaliation made by inmate Reginald Steed. Steed was convicted in a 2015 shooting incident and was sent to prison. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that from March 2017 to January 2018, while being incarcerated, Steed sent letters to the Davidson County prosecutor who tried his case, threatening retaliation if the charges against him weren’t dropped.

On April 23rd, the Davidson County Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Reginald Cavoy Steed (DOB 03/01/1991) with one count of Retaliation for Past Action. He was served with the capias Thursday. Steed is currently incarcerated at the Whiteville Correctional Facility.
