Former Perryville chief files for bankruptcy
JACKSON, Mo. (AP) _ The former Perryville police chief who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor has filed for bankruptcy.
The Southeast Missourian reports (http://bit.ly/1pRKXST ) that documents filed Thursday in federal court say Keith Tarrillion, former police chief for Perryville, is now selling cars and has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Tarrillion pleaded guilty in July to a misdemeanor charge of making a false report. He resigned from the police department in 2013 amid allegations of professional misconduct. As part of a plea agreement, Tarrillion surrendered his police license, received a six-month suspended jail sentence and was ordered to serve 10 days in jail.
According to the federal bankruptcy filing, Tarrillion owes the city $43,000, which was triggered by his guilty plea. Perryville is listed on the filing as a creditor holding “unsecured nonpriority claims.”
