Former Tennessee Highway Patrolman and Lafayette resident Keith Garrett was found guilty of unlawful photographing of an individual in violation of privacy and observation without consent on Thursday, October 12, following a three-day trial in the Macon County Criminal Courtroom of Judge Brody Kane.
Macon County Chronicle readers may recall the details leading up to the charges against Garret, published in our July 14, 2020 issue.
Garrett was terminated from the THP after the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted the Department of Safety & Homeland Security and informed them that nude photographs and a nude video of a woman had been found on Garrett’s phone.
Garrett was interviewed by the FBI, and admitted to videoing the woman while she was in the shower and taking nude photos of her, without her knowledge or consent.
The photos and videos were saved to his personal phone.
Garrett’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 16, 2024 at 1 p.m. in Wilson County.
