Mt. Juliet Business owner Thomas Courtney was sentenced on Monday to an 11 months and 29 days jail sentence in his DUI 3rd case in Davidson County. He was already in custody for his trial after a Nashville judge revoked his bond for multiple probation violations and repeated arrests in Wilson county, who continued to ROR him back into society to continue to commit crimes without penalty. As a part of his Nashville sentence, he will be required to participate in and complete the New Avenue alcohol treatment program within the Davidson County Detention Center. After applying the automatic percentage of sentencing and time already served, Courtney is scheduled for release on July 26th of 2022, at which time he will still have trials and sentencing in Wilson County for cases including a probation violation (x3), domestic assault, and driving on a revoked license (x2). As part of his Davidson County sentence, Courtney will lose his driver’s license for six years. Judge Higgins set a special condition to Courtney’s sentence, which prevents him from petitioning the court for an early release, for any reason, other than the stand time calculations given to every inmate at the facility.
After Mt. Juliet & Wilson County authorities declined to even require their beloved citizen to post a bond after committing a brutal assault on his fiance, or for multiple prior DUI and other related offenses, Nashville has stepped in to revoke his bond on one of his cases in Davidson County. On Thursday, both the Davidson County District Attorney and his Nashville probation officer filed separate motions with the court which were granted.
One is a violation of his probation, citing he failed a drug test on October 19th and was subsequently arrested for new charges in Wilson County. The other, a motion from ADA Laney Ann Heard, notes he has 4 pending probation violations in Wilson County, received a citation for texting-while-driving in August, in addition to the new arrests, and asks the court to revoke his bond until a hearing can be held in Nashville. Both orders were signed early yesterday and he was surrendered on the charges to the county jail, where he will remain until his next hearing, which will happen next week.
The 52-year-old troubled alcoholic Mt. Juliet restaurant owner, Thomas P. Courtney, has been booked into jail yet again and released on his own recognizance, this time after assaulting his girlfriend, leaving her badly bruised.

A Wilson County magistrate released him on his own recognizance, as with most of his other dozen arrests.
