Brewer pleads guilty to four counts

By NEMS Daily Journal

GREENVILLE – A sentencing date has not been set for a Corinth police officer who pleaded guilty to four counts of depriving individuals of their civil rights.
Jamie Brewer remained free on bond after pleading guilty before U.S. District Judge W. Allen Pepper to four of nine counts brought against him by the U.S. attorney.
He was charged with using his authority as a police officer to make traffic stops and take money from the wallets of the suspects.
The incidents reportedly occurred in mid-September, and a grand jury filed charges in October.
Brewer changed his plea on Friday and could be sentenced to a maximum of one year in prison, a fine of not more than $100,000 and up to one year of supervised release, along with a special assessment of $25.00.
Brewer also is required to pay restitution of $2,257, of which he has paid $1,000.
