CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) – Accused of a procedural problem that resulted in a woman being arrested for a probation volition, a $150,000 lawsuit has been filed against Corrections Corporation of America and their Silverdale facility.

Veronica Ann Fuget pleaded guilty in 2015 for driving under the influence (DUI) and sentenced to 11 months and 29 days. Another charge, violation of the Motor Vehicle Offender Act ended with a sentence of one year.

Fuget entered into an agreement with the court to serve the sentence over weekends, beginning September 12, 2015, and serving seven consecutive days beforehand.

The court required her to report to Silverdale on September 23, 2015; October 2, 2105 and October 9, 2015 to “serve those weekends,” according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims that despite the fact CCA was aware of the agreement, some staff members reported that Fuget did not show at Silverdale on September 23, and that information was passed on to the court.

That’s when a probation violation order was issued for Fuget for arrest without bond. She was booked October 5.

On October 19, 2105, the court found “Ms. Fuget apparently was at the workhouse [Silverdale] when the workhouse sent notice to the Court that she was not at the workhouse, so it’s an error on the part of the workhouse.”

The lawsuit alleges that Fuget “suffered unnecessary loss of her liberty, mental anguish and had to incur the expense of defense counsel” as a direct result of the acts and omissions of CCA.

Fuget is seeking compensatory damages of $150,000.
