Update : Fannin County Tax Commissioner Arrested

Featured Stories, News

 Blue Ridge, Ga. – The Fannin County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) has confirmed the arrest of Fannin County Tax Commissioner Shirley Sosebee.

The arrest was made shortly after 4:00 p.m. on March 5, 2020. Warrants were issued for Sosebee on charges of Forgery in the First Degree and Violation of Oath of Office by a Public Officer.

Sosebee has since been released on a $10,000 bond.

In a press release, FCSO stated:

“A complaint was filed by the victim to the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office that the signature on a deed to transfer title on a parcel of real estate had been forged. After a brief inquiry by the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office, GBI was requested to conduct the formal investigation.”

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was requested for assistance on Feb. 27, 2020.

Fannin County Sheriff Dane Kirby did clarify, “The initial inquiry by the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office determined the complaint against the tax commissioner did not involve the operations of the tax commissioner’s office, but involved personal, family business.” 

The charges come after a portion of land inherited by Sosebee and other family was deeded over to Sosebee’s daughter. 

Quitclaim Deeds filed on Nov. 6 and Nov. 8, 2019 show signatures from Shirley Sosebee, Jeanette Holloway, and Raymond White Jr. signing the parcel over. All Quitclaim Deeds in the case are notarized by Kelly M. Hughes.

White signed an affidavit on Jan. 6, 2020  in Gilmer County claiming that his signature had been forged.  

White claims in the affidavit : 

“I did not sign or authorize the signature on the Quitclaim Deed recorded in Book 1319, Page 37 of the Fannin County Clerk of Superior Court on November 8, 2019. I have reviewed the Quitclaim Deed and confirmed that it is not my signature and I have never appeared before any notary regarding this matter.

Furthermore, the property described in Deed Book 1319, Page 37 was owned by my mother Kathleen White. I have maintained the land since the passing of my father John Raymond White in April, 2003. I have mowed and weeded on a weekly basis, bush-hogged at least once a year and cleared a garage that was in wreckage. After the passing of my mother in October 2015, I continued to maintain the property by mowing, weeding and bush-hogging.”

Sosebee, who had recently qualified to run in Fannin County’s 2020 Election as incumbent for the seat of Fannin County Tax Commissioner, withdrew her name on March 6 following these events.

Likewise, Sosebee’s husband, Larry Joe Sosebee, who had qualified to run for Fannin County Chairman, also withdrew.

“I would like to thank everyone for their support of me running for Chairman  and their continued support,” Larry Joe told FYN speaking of his decision not to run.

Shirely, taking the advice of legal counsel, was unable to give comment.

FYN reached out to GBI for comment regarding the investigation, but GBI also could not comment due to the investigation being ongoing.

McCaysville man charged with aggravated assault with a firearm

News, Police & Government

McCaysville, Ga. – Darrell Allen Tritt, age 59, of McCaysville is facing charges of simple battery, reckless conduct causing harm or endangering bodily safety of another, aggravated assault with a gun and discharging a firearm while under the influence.

McCaysville Police responded to a 911 dispatch on the evening of Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020.

Officer Peter Kusek along with Officer Philip Newberry were working the nightshift when a call came in around 8:29 p.m. of a domestic in progress with shots fired.

Darrell Allen Tritt, age 59, of McCaysville

Kusek was first to arrive at the scene and was met by David Hatcher in the front yard of the residence. Hatcher had been the one to call 911.

According to Hatcher, he had received a text message from his mother, Jacqueline Tritt, stating that his stepfather, Darrell Tritt, had hit her. He had come to their residence out of concern for his mother’s safety.

Hatcher admitted that he had broke the lock on the glass storm door trying to gain entry and had kicked the interior wooden door twice. It was then that Darrell Tritt had called out to Hatcher that he was a “stupid mother<explicit>” and demanded that he leave.

Shortly after Tritt demanding Hatcher leave, a shot came through the wooden door, narrowly missing Hatcher and shattering the glass storm door that Hatcher was holding open with his body. It was at this time that the 911 call was made and Hatcher stated in that call that “mom was trying to get the gun”.

During this discussion between Hatcher and Officer Kusek, suspect Darrell Tritt exited the house with empty hands in the air and yelled to the officer that he did not have a weapon.

Though visibly intoxicated, according to Kusek, Tritt was capable of understanding the situation and communicating, and allowed the officer to handcuff and search his person without incident.

Kusek described Tritt as “unsteady on his feet” with “glassy and bloodshot” eyes, and had an “odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath”.

Tritt told a different version of events claiming that he had never hit his wife Jacqueline. Tritt admitted to firing a gun but claimed it was self-defence. Tritt told Kusek that he was physically diabled and that Hatcher had come to the residence “to beat his ass”.

Hatcher was reportedly calm while his stepfather told this version of events and did not offer to interfere or attempt to argue with Tritt.

When Jacqueline was questioned about her husband’s actions that evening, she first stated that she had no idea how the glass door had been broken, and that she had been asleep during the entire event. When Kusek told Jacqueline that he heard it was from a gunshot, she replied, “I guess, I don’t know.”

Hatcher told officers a different version of his mother’s actions, claiming that after the shot had been fired, Jacqueline had exited the house and asked him not to call the police.

Eventually, Jacqueline broke down and began crying, making statements that her husband is never like this and she didn’t know what had happened.

With permission officers searched the residence and located the weapon that had been used. Officers also verified the initial text message sent from Jacqueline to her son. 

Darrell Tritt was then taken into custody.

Darrell Tritt waived his rights and spoke with officers before being charged and transferred to the Fannin County Detention Center.

Evidence Collected at Scene:

  • One Glock 23, .40 Caliber Pistol
  • One Glock 23, .40 Caliber 12-Round Magazine
  • Twelve .40 Caliber Bullets (9-Hollowpoint and 3 Flathead)
  • One Uncle Mike’s Black Nylon Pistol Holster
