Grand jury decision about former highway commissioner

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - A former Sullivan County Highway Commissioner will not face criminal charges regarding irregularities within the highway department.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation looked into Terry Shaffer. The TBI says the focus of that investigation was on sexual allegations and the alleged misappropriation of county funds. 

A grand jury decided there was not enough evidence to proceed with criminal charges.

Shaffer retired in December amid the investigation.
