61-year-old Debbie Moss, the current elected Circuit Court Clerk of Wilson County, was arrested overnight, charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident w/property damage, and violation of the implied consent law. She was released on her own recognizance with a January 2020 court date.
Deborah ‘Debbie’ Lynn Moss was booked into the Wilson County Jail at 12:13 a.m. Sunday morning, September 29th, and later released at 5:25 a.m. on her own recognizance. Other than the initial charges, further details were not immediately available Sunday morning.
Moss is scheduled to appear in court on January 27th to answer for the charges of driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, and violation of the implied consent law. We will update with further details as they become available.
The daughter of Debbie Moss, Sydney Seat, took to social media early Sunday morning to defend her mother, and claimed the arrest was a political move, writing: “This is a BS charge and 100% not true. The law was not followed, but in this case it was by the officers … not the accused. That’ll come to the light when it plays out. To whom ever put this into action, trying to bring her down, she’s stronger than that.”
