Judge refuses to supress warrant on Wheelon Stables
From Staff Reports
Blount County General Sessions Court Judge Robert L. Headrick refused this morning to suppress the warrant on Larry Wheelon Stables.
Wheelon, 68, is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals. Since Judge Headrick didn’t throw out the warrant, the preliminary hearing began immediately.
The hearing was adjourned before lunch and will reconvene at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
The preliminary hearing is to determine whether there is probable cause to send the case to Blount County Grand Jury.
