Two Tullahoma Businesses Fined For Selling Beer To Minors
Gregory Jackson, who holds the permit in use at the Piggly Wiggly on East Lincoln Street, appeared before the board to answer for two complaints. One was for selling beer to someone underage. The other was for a store clerk selling the product, that clerk had been barred from selling beer and tobacco after a conviction back in 2012. That conviction disqualified the clerk from selling beer for a period of 10 years.
Jackson was fined a total of $2,000. The clerk no longer works at the store.
Another hearing involved the Mapco Express on East Lincoln Street, also known as Favorite Market. Representing the business at the hearing was Yuri Rodriguez, the store’s general manager.
Tullahoma City Attorney Randall Morrison said a clerk at the market sold beer to a 19-year-old undercover informant back in April. The clerk has since pleaded guilty in city court and been assessed the maximum fine.
The board voted to assess a $1,000 fine to the market, the maximum penalty for a first offense. (Portions of this story provided by the Tullahoma News)
