Sheriff: Jailer, Two Others Charged in Sevier Drug Conspiracy

A Sevier County corrections officer was booked into the jail where he once worked Thursday after being arrested on charges of smuggling drugs into the jail, according to the Sevier County Sheriff's Office.

After learning of a plan to smuggle narcotics into the Sevier County Jail Annex to deliver to an inmate, deputies searched the possessions of a corrections officer, 24-year-old Joshua Davis, as he was reporting to work, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.

The deputies found and confiscated drugs, and arrested Davis on charges including introducing contraband into a penal facility, criminal conspiracy and possession of a Schedule III narcotic for resale, according to the release.

The inmate, Billy R. McMahan, 37, and his mother, Debra L. McMahan, 58, both of Sevierville, were charged with conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal facility, according to the release. Debra McMahan was also charged with sale and delivery of a Schedule III narcotic in connection with the incident, the release reads.

Davis was booked into the Sevier County jail where he once worked under a $30,000 bond, and Debra McMahan is awaiting arraignment.
