In news today…
People with misdemeanor Failure To Appear (FTA) offenses on their records have until today to “hit the reset button” on their cases.
Law enforcement agencies in Bradley County are offering the opportunity for any misdemeanor FTA offenders to come to the Bradley County Justice Center and have their cases reset on the docket without having to go to jail.
Since Tuesday, FTA offenders have been given the opportunity to report to the Bradley County Brian K. Smith Inmate Workhouse in order to receive their new court date. That opportunity continues from 9 to 4 p.m. today.
No defendant who appears to have his/her case reset will be arrested for their misdemeanor, but will have their cases reset for a future date. Those who take advantage of this opportunity will be taken through the booking process while receiving their renewed court date and will be released through booking as quickly as possible. This will appear on their record, but they will be booked and released on an “own recognizance” status per the judge.
Anyone with an outstanding misdemeanor FTA in Bradley County is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. All appropriate social distancing guidelines will be followed during the course of this event.
The Brian K. Smith Inmate Workhouse is located at the Bradley County Justice Center, 2290 Blythe Ave., in Cleveland.

The Tennessee Economic Recovery Team, tasked with providing guidelines for the reopening of business sectors, has issued guidelines for reopening noncontact sports, summer camps, and higher education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Noncontact sports such as baseball, softball, volleyball, golf, running events, and equestrian events were allowed to resume last week under Governor Bill Lee’s Executive Order 38. Today’s guidelines expand guidance for overnight summer camps and higher education facilities.
Overnight camps and summer camps are expected to conduct pre-screening, limit the mixing of campers and staff, and modify sleeping arrangements.
For colleges and universities, the guidelines call for such actions like screening students each class period, encouraging distance learning, and having both students and employees wear masks.
