Former jail guard gets probation for trusty tryst

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. — A former jail guard is on probation after pleading guilty to five counts of sexual contact with a prisoner.

Twenty-five-year-old Dawn Marie Heading entered the plea Monday. She was sentenced to 18 months of probation.

The Kingsport Times News reports the relationship between Heading and trusty Phillip Greenwell became known after she informed her jail supervisor she was pregnant and requested a light duty assignment.


Greenwell was transferred to state custody and lost good time credits earned for his work as a trusty at the Carter County Jail.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
