BLOUNTVILLE — A 75-year-old Bristol man has been found guilty of charges he fondled a woman after she brought him dinner in September 2010.
Ronald Gene Pullon, 610 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., was convicted of two counts of sexual battery after a jury trial Monday in Sullivan County Criminal Court. The judge then sentenced Pullon to 18 months of supervised probation. Pullon was also ordered to pay $6,200 in fines, and he will be added to the Tennessee Sexual Offender Registry for a minimum of 10 years. After that, he may petition for removal.
According to an affidavit filed by Bristol police, the incident occurred on Sept. 28, 2010, at Pullon’s residence. The victim said Pullon had hugged her so hard she “felt her ribs crack,” then put his hands on the inside of her clothing.
