Men Charged With Double-Billing For Inmate Work

Posted: Updated:

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - A father and son have been accused of double-billing for work supervising jail inmates.

Samuel Garland is the town's former jail superintendent. He has been charged with stealing more than $60,000 from the Johnson City-Washington County Boys and Girls Club by billing for inmate supervision he performed as a paid city employee.

His son, David Garland, has been charged with stealing more than $10,000 when he supervised inmates as part of his job with the Johnson City Parks and Recreation Department. He also was employed at East Tennessee State University. A review of his time records revealed he was being paid for working the same hours at both jobs.

He was also accused of allowing the inmates to smoke and drink.

Both men are free on bond.
