Former Sullivan jailer indicted for sexual exploitation of minors

BLOUNTVILLE — A former corrections sergeant at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office has been indicted on 32 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and five counts of official misconduct.

Randy Hass, 45, of 308 R. C. Barrett Road, Kingsport, was indicted Tuesday by a Sullivan County grand jury. He turned himself in to police early Friday morning and was released upon posting $100,000 bond. The 16-year veteran of the department was fired nearly seven months ago, less than 24 hours after the Sheriff's Office launched an internal investigation into allegations against him.

"To me, this is the most disgusting and sickening employee investigation in my 13 years as Sheriff," said Sheriff Wayne Anderson.
