CHATTANOOGA — Investigators at Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office could not prove Deputy Justin Tabor had sex with a girl in the Explorer Post program before she turned 18, only that he provided alcohol to several juveniles, an internal affairs report states.
“The investigation has also revealed that, on numerous occasions, Deputy Sheriff Tabor has slept in the same bed as Juvenile #4,” the report states. “However, there has not been statements or evidence discovered in this investigation that clearly indicates that there is a sexual relationship between Deputy Sheriff Tabor and Juvenile #4.”
Tabor, who has worked at the sheriff’s office since 2009, was recently transferred from patrol to work at the jail. He was also suspended without pay for 132 hours and placed on probation for one year.
