Posted: 4:39 PM Mar 14, 2008
(WVLT) A Cocke County man is now facing federal firearms and moonshine violations.
61 year old Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton of Parrotsville is charged in a four count complaint with three federal charges, related to the making, possessing and selling of untaxed whiskey.
Sutton also faces one charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
If convicted, Sutton faces up to ten years in federal prison on the firearms count and five years for each of the moonshining counts.
He faces up to a $250,000 fine on each count.
Sutton will be back in court, March 28th for a preliminary hearing.
Gotta' love a guy nicknamed "Popcorn".
I hope he destroys the persecution...er prosecution.
I've always wanted to go back.
