Former McMinn deputy gets judicial diversion

A former McMinn County deputy who pleaded guilty to official oppression will eventually have a clear record if he stays out of trouble.

Justin Hester, 31, will serve two years of probation and receive judicial diversion if he keeps the terms of that agreement.

A TBI investigation found Hester made several undocumented traffic stops and took prescription drugs from the cars. He didn't charge the drivers or turn over the drugs as evidence.

Hester resigned in December 2011 and officers arrested him two months later.
