Wayne County Road Superintendent Enters Guilty Plea

WAYNESBORO, TN- Wayne County Superintendent of Roads Chuck Moser, was in court on Friday

Moser's trial was set to begin on Wednesday in Wayne County. 

TRVN was notified by Judge Stella Hargrove's office on Tuesday afternoon that the trial had been canceled. 

Moser appeared before Judge Hargrove in Columbia on Friday morning. Superintendent Moser entered guilty pleas to Attempted Official Misconduct and Permitting Inmates To Work For The Benefit of Private Citizens. These charges are both misdemeanors.

Moser will be placed on probation and will make restitution to Wayne County in the amount of $3011.00. After payment of the restitution and cost, Moser will be on unsupervised probation.

Moser who is in his first term as the Superintendent of Roads in Wayne County was indicted by a Wayne County Grand Jury back in October of 2017.  The grand jury issued indictments against Moser was indicted for Theft over $10,000, Misuse of County Inmates, and Misuse of County Property.

Moser and other elected officials maintained throughout the process that Moser acts were humanitarian in nature.

A Wayne County elected official said that "Chuck helped a family in need and a church, by the letter of the law it may be illegal but I support him."

The Wayne County Commission in a meeting wanted to issue a statement of support for Moser, but the commission was advised against it by the county attorney.

22nd Judicial District Attorney Brent Cooper said "The State took into consideration all of the relevant facts in this case, including Mr. Moser's motives for his actions. However, I took an oath to uphold the law and prosecute violations thereof.  The laws pertinent to these charges are straightforward and do not have exemptions if the reasons for the work are charitable.  With that said, as District Attorney,  I have the discretion to pursue cases, not only with vigor, but with common sense and fairness. That discretion allowed me to offer a resolution to Mr. Moser that is fair and allows him to continue in his position as Highway Superintendent and without a felony conviction.  I am confident he will do so without any further issues. There's a saying that comes to mind in this situation:  "Just because it's always been done that way doesn't mean it's the right way to do it."  I am glad that Mr.Moser, his family, and the people of Wayne County can now put this behind them."  

Moser also released a statement to TVRN where he explained his actions and said that "I hope the citizens of Wayne County understand why I did, what I did."
