Last April’s raid of the Pop Shop concluded this morning in Campbell County Criminal Court. The three players charged in the matter appeared today before Judge E. Shayne Sexton at Jacksboro a week shy of the raid.
Joe Bolinger, Jennifer Brown and Jimmie Ivey all faced multiple charges surrounding misuse of food stamps. All three were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud. All three accepted plea agreements. Read details HERE.
Bolinger agreed to judicial diversion, unsupervised probation of one year and a $500 fine.
Brown has unsupervised probation of 11-months and 29 days and paid a fine of $500.
Ivey received judicial diversion, unsupervised probation for one year and monetary obligations of $5,250.
The Pop Shop’s business philosophy was to buy soft drinks from individuals who had purchased them with food stamps and resell the drinks at a dramatically lower price than you would pay at any other store. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 04/08/2019-3PM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S LINDSEY HUTSON)
