A Murfreesboro man who was pulled over on Greenland Drive for a light violation, was served two warrants and taken to jail. 63-Year old Dannie Todd Brumfield was charged for the 10th time with “Driving on a Revoked License.”
What is odd about this story, WGNS reported that in 2013 Brumfield was charged for the 10th time with “Driving on a Revoked License.” Then, in March of this year, he was charged with his 9th “Driving on a Revoked License.” Now, he is facing charge number 10 again.
You may be curious as to what the punishment can be for someone who is convicted of driving on a revoked license… it is usually (in most cases) a sentence of up to 48 hours behind bars. According to state law, driving on a revoked license is a class B misdemeanor. Sentencing for a class B misdemeanor will not be greater than six (6) months in jail and a fine will not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500), or both, unless otherwise provided by statute.
Brumfield is currently being held under a $113,500
