Wednesday, August 9th

From the Tennova Healthcare Cleveland News Desk, here is your news for Wednesday, August 9th, on Mix 104-1 and Talk 101-3 The Buzz.

Topping our news today, from News Channel 9…

Cleveland Police are investigating after someone stabbed a man early Tuesday morning.

A police report obtained by NewsChannel 9 says that a couple told officers they were leaving the BP gas station on Highway 64 and Durkee Road a little after 5 a.m. and when they were on nearby Johnson Boulevard, they found a young man walking on the side of the road.

The woman in the car recognized the man as Johnathan Doss, a friend of her son’s. Doss told the couple that he “was dying,” and the couple noticed he was bleeding. They rushed him to Tennova Hospital.

Cleveland Police Officer Josh Hodge spoke to Doss in the hospital. The police report says Doss told Officer Hodge that he met up with a man named “Tony” to buy heroin. Tony reportedly drove a white Chevrolet. But the report says Doss wasn’t able to continue the conversation.

Cleveland Police say they continue to look for suspects.

From the Cleveland Daily Banner…

Cody Judd pleaded “no contest” to vehicular homicide Monday in the traffic death of Ashlyn Lamberth, and could serve up to six years for the crime.

Judd, represented by his attorney Matthew Rogers, waived all rights to appeal the decision by Circuit Court Judge Andrew Freiberg, though he still would have the opportunity to appeal the judge’s sentence, which will occur at a Dec. 15 court appearance.

His trial was to begin yesterday, but he pleaded no contest in Bradley County Criminal Court a day before it was to start.

On May 20, 2015, Judd was reportedly driving a logging truck north on U.S. Highway 11 (North Lee Highway) when he struck a vehicle driven by Lamberth, 17 at the time of the wreck, who had just graduated from Bradley Central High School and had plans to attend Lee University. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident near the intersection of North Lee Highway and Tasso Road.

Judd was eventually charged in the case, and has since been out on bond pending the motions hearing on Monday.

Judd, who was 20 at the time of the wreck, also reportedly did not have a commercial driver’s license. This type of license, a Class B CDL, is required to drive a logging truck and other vehicles commercially in the state.

Officials said just after the accident that only someone age 21 or over is eligible for a CDL.

Until the December sentencing, Judd will remain free on a $50,000 bond, as he has been just after the North Lee Highway accident.

The United States Marshal’s Service (USMS) completed its annual inspection of the Bradley County Sheriff Office’s Correctional Facility. The inspection conducted by USMS enables the federal agency to identify any problem areas as well as identifying the various services provided to incarcerated inmates.

It’s common protocol for USMS to perform yearly inspections on all active correctional facilities that house federal inmates. Currently the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office is contracted to lodge inmates who fall under the United States Federal Court’s authority.

Upon USMS’ completion of the inspection, Correctional Captain Gabe Thomas was informed the jail received high marks throughout the evaluation phase and exceeded federal standards.
