Ex-Trustee Lowe pleads guilty to theft; to serve 1 year, pay fine

Former Knox County Trustee Mike Lowe pleaded guilty today in what prosecutors called the "most significant public corruption" case in the county's history.

He'll serve less than a year. However, the way it works out, the county will be in control of forcing him to pay back some $200,000 in fines as opposed to the state monitoring him. I think. Heh.

Here's the Knox County DA's press release RIGHT SMACK HERE.

Always the politician, Lowe entered court shaking everyone's hand. He sought at an on-camera interview and apologized profusely. Interesting stuff.
