Large gathering starting for the Men of Valor Ministry Annual Breakfast in Knoxville. Great program and worthy cause!

Helping People is what it’s all about!

Helping People is what it’s all about!

One of the greatest things about our Program is the collaboration and the unified effort to help our participants. This week, one of our participants needed some assistance with some child support issues. Frederick H. Agee has always been a tremendous asset and supporter of our program, he immediately jumped in and gave us the assistance of his office. Kim Holmes, Manager with the Child Support Divsion, answered all of our questions, gave us some guidance and worked out the perfect solution. We are so thankful for the collaboration and service we get from our partnering agencies. Today, there was a check dropped off that paid for almost all of the arrears on a particular case. The blessings that flow over our program is such a spectacular thing to be able to witness. Thank you so very much General Agee and Mrs. Kim, we are so thankful and appreciative for you both all you do for our Communities and Program. On behalf of Bradley Owens General Sessions Judge and the GCVC Family, we wanted to present one of our special Veterans Court Tshirts as a thank you for all your help. SM

Friends and Clients,

Thank you for supporting my law practice over the years. As of October 23, I'm now serving as District Attorney for the people of Crockett, Gibson, and Haywood counties thus I can no longer continue my law practice or provide legal advice to individuals or businesses.

If I can assist you in my role as District Attorney, please feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you again and God Bless.


Friends & Clients, good morning from North Fort Hood, Texas where I'm out-processing from active duty. As most of you know I’ve recently had the distinct honor of being appointed by Governor Lee to serve as District Attorney for the 28th Judicial District. I want to thank you all for referring citizens to my office over the years and thank those citizens who trusted my office in handling their legal matters. It has been an honor and privilege to be able to represent people. The only job I’ve ever dreamed of other than being a criminal defense lawyer is to be the DA. I know I’m truly blessed to see my dream come true at the age of 41.

Thus, I’m no longer able to continue my private practice and we have started the process of withdrawing from any and all pending cases my office is handling. If you or a loved one have a pending legal matter with my office please feel free to contact me on my cell phone or email me at [email protected]. All clients will need to go ahead and start finding another attorney to handle your pending legal matter(s).

Lastly, thank you again for allowing my law office to serve our community. My office would not have been successful without your support. God Bless!

Frederick H. Agee


To our Clients and Prospective Clients,

Some of you may or may not know I'm a commissioned officer in the US Army Reserve and have served for 16 years. With that being said, I'm scheduled to deploy with the US Army in May on a 9 month tour to the Middle East which means I will not be in the office during this time but will be able to be reached here on FB, email, and mobile phone. Our firm will have limited support staff while I'm away. I want to thank everyone for referring clients to our firm however, at this time I'm no longer taking any General Sessions or City Court cases.

If you have a recent Circuit Court indictment in Crockett, Gibson, or Haywood Counties, please feel free to give me a call or send a message to discuss your legal matter.

For my active clients, our office will be contacting you and we will be reaching out to the local courts to request that your cases be put on hold until my return.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Thank you so much for the business. I'm truly blessed to be able to do what I do.

Attention High School Football Fans: Bank of Milan in Milan has another 200 tickets on sale for Thursday night's Peabody v. Milan game at Peabody. You can also purchase advance tickets at Peabody High School in Trenton.

If you're unable to purchase your tickets in advance you can purchase them tomorrow night (Thursday, August 22) at the gate which will open at 5:00 p.m. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

It is my understanding that over 1,000 advance tickets have already been sold. Tomorrow night should be a fun atmosphere and great high school football game.

We hope to see you tomorrow night!


Planning on attending the Peabody v. Milan football game Thursday night? Here is an overview of the Peabody Campus with main parking lots. Please note parking lots may include some reserved parking areas. At this time, I'm unsure about any overflow parking.

Also, there are 2 ways to enter Peabody High School. The first is the main entrance off of the 45 Bypass and the second is off of Gibson Road Hwy 186 behind the Middle School.

Lastly, advance tickets are currently being sold at Peabody High School and Bank of Milan during working hours.

Have a great day and we hope to see you at the game.


Attention: I have been overwhelmed with phones calls and voicemails from folks wanting to hire my office during the last week. However, I am currently out of State serving our Country in the Army Reserves until Thursday, August 1, 2019 (Next Week).

We are setting appointments for my return but please be patient I will be back soon.

Thank you for understanding and thank you for the business.


Today, the Gibson County Grand Jury for Trenton will meet to indict a new group of citizens accused of mostly felony crimes. In the 28th Judicial District (Crockett, Gibson, and Haywood Counties) both the State & the Defense Attorneys attempt to resolve misdemeanors in the General Sessions or City Courts which are the lower Courts however, some citizens will also be accused of misdemeanor crimes during this Grand Jury meeting.

What is a Grand Jury? A Grand Jury is a group of 12 citizens randomly selected who meet in secret with the Government to decide whether or not to indict a citizen accused of a crime. There is a foreman who presides over the Grand Jury. This process is completely one sided by the Government. Those accused do not get a chance to tell their side of the Story nor are they allowed to be represented by an attorney. In fact the only witnesses the Grand Jury gets to hear from are the Government's witnesses.

Can Grand Jurors question the cases that are presented to them? Yes, Grand Jurors have every right to ask questions about these cases. They also have the right to question, witnesses. Additionally, a Grand Juror can vote to not indict a citizen but in my opinion that rarely happens because most Grand Jurors don't know they can question the Status Quo.

If you or someone you know is indicted today feel free to give my office a call at 731-613-AGEE or on my cell at 731-695-1717.

Thank you in advance for referrals. Have a blessed day!


"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."

Good morning! I want to thank everyone who continues to refer cases to my law practice. Also, I want to thank those who have retained my office to represent them.

Being a small business owner is not easy and there is no guaranteed paycheck at the end of the week. You have to be willing to work and fight for people if you want to stay in business.

Again, thank you for the support and have a blessed weekend.

32 Tennessee doctors, nurses and medical professionals indicted in massive opioid crackdown

I hope Tennesseans will remember that there are two sides to every story. The accused medical providers are innocent until proven guilty however, the Federal Government has so much power compared to ordinary folks like us that the deck is almost completely stack against the accused.

Why hasn't the Department of Justice indicted the CEOs of big pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer and Purdue Pharma for making such highly addictive drugs and pushing them into our communities? Because they have the MONEY to fight back and Federal Prosecutors are not likely to win.

Lastly, I hope people can see that the medical providers indicted today are just LOW HANGING FRUIT for the Department of Justice. The real criminals are the companies that make these drugs but they are on a level playing field with the Federal Government and these companies also write big checks to most of our politicians in D.C. which have influence on who serves as Federal Prosecutors.

Thirty-two Tennessee medical professionals were charged with drug crimes related to drugs and overprescribing as part of a nationwide takedown focused on combating the opioid crisis.


Charged with a Crime? Give my office a call at 731-613-AGEE (2433) or on my cell at 731-695-1717.

Thank you again to those of you that have blessed my office with referrals. My family and I really appreciate it.

So far in 2019, my firm has assisted 3 incarcerated clients with obtaining grants to attend inpatient drug and alcohol treatment. We have also helped with getting these clients into transitional housing so that they have a better opportunity of not reoffending.

We are in the business of helping people.

If you have a loved one that is in jail due to a alcohol or drug addiction give my office a call at 731-613-AGEE.

Thank you always for the support.

Just a reminder to the People that Citizens accused of a crime are innocent until proven guilty. It may not seem like that is the case nowadays but there are some of us who still believe in a Presumption of Innocence.

Former Milan Band Director, John Scruggs will be in Gibson County General Sessions Court at Trenton today Friday, December 14th at 1:00 p.m. He is set for a preliminary hearing that covers three (3) jurisdictions which include the Humboldt Law Court, Gibson County General Sessions Court, and Crockett County General Sessions Court.

He is facing a number of alleged sexual charges brought by a minor female student.

If the hearing happens today, the public, should find out how strong of a case the Government has against Scruggs.

There are a couple of things that could happen in Court:

1. The preliminary hearing will take place and the Judge will make a determination whether there is probable cause for these cases to be bound over to the Grand Jury. If they are bound over it is almost 100% the Grand Jury will issue a true bill and indict Scruggs.
2. Scruggs could waive the hearing which may mean his attorney received evidence from the Government that satisfied their desire to have a preliminary hearing.
3. The Government and Scruggs could enter into an Information Plea that allows him to enter a felony plea in Trial Court thus not requiring a preliminary hearing. This would also allow him to bypass the Grand Jury process.
4. The matter could get continued to a later date.

If there is a hearing today the alleged victim should testify unless the Government has enough evidence to convince the Judge the case should be bound over to the Grand Jury.

Lastly, representing the Government will be Jennifer Dean McEwen and representing Scruggs will be Daniel Taylor.


What is a Grand Jury? It is a group of citizens who are picked to decide whether to indict a person on an alleged crime. This proceeding is completely one-sided with only the Prosecutor and Government witnesses allowed to be in the room. A person accused of a crime does not get to tell their side of the story which is no fault to the members of the Grand Jury, it's just the way the process is setup.

If you have recently been indicted by a Grand Jury give my office a call at 731-613-AGEE to discuss your pending case.


Thank you to our Veterans and those who continue to serve in our Military! I'm very proud to be one of only a few Military Veteran Lawyers serving the People of 28th Judicial District in Crockett, Haywood, and Gibson Counties. In my 15 years of service, I have deployments to the Middle East and Joint Task Force Guantanamo and an overseas tour to the Republic of Korea. The military has brought me so many memories and life lessons thus I'm truly blessed to have been apart of it. Most of all I'm thankful for all the people I have served with and met over the years.


Press Release 04 November 2018:

My law firm has been contacted by Jeremiah Mays, who the Madison County Sheriff's Office Tennessee in Jackson has named as a suspect in a recent alleged murder. Since being named a suspect by the Government and reported by WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News, Mr. Mays, has received a number of indirect and direct threats.

Mr. Mays has professed his innocence and has provided my office a solid alibi of where he was at the time this alleged incident took place. Mr. Mays has continued to show up at his place of employment and is not a threat to the community.

Additionally, we are respectfully asking the public, the media, and law enforcement to remember there is a presumption of innocence in this Country. We are also respectfully requesting the Sheriff's Office and WBBJ to clear Mr. Mays’s name by releasing a public retraction.

Lastly, we are all praying for the victim’s family and if you have knowledge about this alleged murder, please contact investigators at the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

If you or a loved one have recently been charged with a crime or indicted by a Grand Jury, give me a call at 731-613-AGEE or on my cell at 731-695-1717.

I practice Criminal Law and would be glad to give you a free consultation.

Thank you in advance for any referrals!


If you are a lawyer who practices criminal law in Gibson County and have a female client(s) incarcerated at the County jail, I have a challenge for everyone including myself! There are approximately 22 female inmates in the County jail as of today.

I am challenging everyone who is representing a female inmate to get them out of jail! If they are dealing with addiction issues help find them a recovery center to go to. If you are just waiting to plea their cases out or to go to trial get a court date.

Let's empty out the female pod at the Gibson County Jail!


Thank you to everyone who continues to send criminal and personal injury clients my way! My family and I really appreciate the referrals.

A court should never punish a person for exercising their constitutional rights to deny law enforcement officers entry to their home. If law enforcement wants to search your home make them get a Search Warrant.

Again it's your right to deny a search. A Judge must find that there is probable cause before a search warrant can be issued. Make them work for it!

The 4th Amendment States:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.


In the blink of an eye the 2018 high school football regular season is over. Congratulations to our Gibson County teams that are competing and working every week to get better!


This morning I came to one of my favorite places in while my girls slept inn. As I scroll over the morning headlines, I am reminded about addiction.

At times those of us working in criminal justice can get pretty frustrated dealing with addicts. However, we must remember that those who are able to get clean and sober will be in recovery for the rest of their lives. When they relapse or go back to using, we must reach down and try to pick them back up, not kick them when their down.

There are those that need jail time, there are those that need treatment, and there are those that need a combination of both but we must not give up on helping them defeat addiction.


Let me be your Giant killer!

"Giants are not what we think they are. The same qualities that appear to give them strength are often the sources of great weakness"

You either believe in it or you don't.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


One of the things that is very disappointing as a Lawyer is when you help someone struggling with addiction to get clean and sober, then they relapse back to using. However, we must remember that these folks are in recovery and they are probably going to struggle with using for the rest of their lives! The only thing we can really do is give them positive encouragement to live a healthy and sober life.


If you or someone know have been recently been charged with a crime or indicted by a Gibson County Grand Jury, give my office a call at 731-613-AGEE or you can inbox us here on Facebook.

We handle all criminal matters and aggressively represent our clients. Criminal Law is what we do!

Federal indictments unsealed in 2016 Taser incident at Cheatham Co. Jail

At times it is a very tough job being a correctional officer however, this is unconscionable and those involved are on the other side of the law now! Good luck in Federal Court.

More than a year after current and former corrections officers at the Cheatham County Jail were investigated for the use of unlawful force on an 18-year-old detainee and making false reports to fed...

Over the long weekend, I was organizing my office and found this "Thank you" note from a few months back.

If I ran out of gas and needed a lift, I hope someone would do the same for me.
