John PuckettWESTMORELAND, TN – A small town Tennessee police officer was arrested after officials said he admitted to having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

John Edwin Puckett, 49, has been charged with two counts of aggravated statutory rape and one count of soliciting sexual exploitation from jailbait.

Westmoreland Police Chief K.D. Smith went to Puckett’s home on Tuesday after the officer failed to show up for work. Smith said that Puckett confessed to having sex with the girl and then resigned from the department.

“When he told me he had been involved in sexual activities with a 16 year old I was speechless,” Smith said.

According to an affidavit filed with the Sumner County Sheriffs Department, the teen’s mother called police after the girl told the woman she had sex with Puckett on at least two different occasions. The mother then confronted Puckett, who admitted to her that the allegations were true.

The victim told investigators that the sex occurred either in her car or Puckett’s, and happened at different spots around Westmoreland. The teen had previously babysat Puckett’s two young children, and lived near Puckett’s home.

After launching an investigation, officers discovered several nude photos of Puckett on the victim’s cell phone, as well as an explicit video of him performing a sex act.

Smith said Puckett has worked in law enforcement for over 23 years, and until Tuesday, was highly respected within the close-knit department, which serves a community of roughly 2,200 people. Smith says he’s known him for more than two decades, and hired Puckett because of his impeccable track record. Must’ve done pretty well on the physical, too, if he could keep up with a kid one-third his age.

“This has put a black mark on the department,” said Chief Smith. “It is dishonoring the badge, it is discrediting the department, the city, and the other officers he worked with.”

Puckett is being held in the Sumner County Jail in Gallatin on $150,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in court on September 4.

    When I was 16, a 49 year old man was equivalent to what I would assume a 100 year old man would be for me now. :shutters: Hell, when I was 18, I thought 30 was old and decrepit! So I’ll be dating myself with this reference, but anyone remember the Sex in the City episode where Samantha is banging the rich old dude and later she sees his wrinkly old ass?

  • sugarpie

    Ummm, Ewwwww!

  • VenusDoom3

    Ugh, Drew Peterson syndrome is spreading!

  • Neon_Gonorrhea

    Oh hell…A cop AND a kiddie diddler. Damn pops, they are gonna LOVE you in prison!

  • whateverme

    When I was younger, I had a thing for older guys. Then at 23 I married someone 10 yrs older and 2 yrs later I realized wtf was I thinking. I’ve done a lot of dumb shit in my life but THAT was the worst mistake ever.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Ewwww, wrinkled balls, wrinkled balls! LOLOLOLOL

  • BrittBrittRoss

    & of course, it goes without saying he is way old enough to know better…Tsk, tsk, for shame. Poor child must be fucked up in the head.

  • https://www.facebook.com/cheri.calhoun.1 Cheri Calhoun

    yuck, I want to stab him in the eyes

  • rizoo

    What a little slut…….. lol–

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    He kinda reminds me of the drill sgnt from full metal jacket. In a pedophile-y kind of way.

  • http://truecrimereport.com iLLusionS

    I see Johnny Knoxville’s “old balls” skit from Jackass here….
    I guess she had a thing for older men in uniform…and he realized she was nuts enough to do it….yuck…

  • Jycorro

    All I can envision is a dusty 2 foot long scrotum bouncing off the car seat and hiting her across the ass.

  • tkaz

    I’ll be the first to admit I had daddy issues when I was a teen. I often was attracted to the guys 10 yrs older than me, but I was a teen so they were under 30. Never had sex – I was just attracted to them. My mom had me on a short leash.
    But HOW is a man that much older than you attractive? Do you just drop your panties because of all the sweet things he says?
    I’m not blaming the girl, but I DO remember what being 16 was like. I just don’t get the thinking….
    Thinking at 16..ha! Silly me.

  • tkaz

    Me too! But my husband is 8 yrs older & we’ve been together 12 yrs so….
    The biggest drawback is we go through things at completely different stages, I’m literally a decade behind him on the whole soul searching, found my groove kind of thing.

  • tkaz

    My husband is almost 45….all the super long scrotum comments are freaking me out.

  • 18th40

    Which makes him 6 years younger than Johnny Depp, go figure.

  • MaricelaAlvrz

    uhhh what was he thinking? he had a good job and a family. is 16 yo vag worth losing everything? are there more victims? i wouldn’t be surprised if this wasn’t the first.

  • tkaz

    Ewwww…Johnny Depp has a wrinkly, long, ball sack.

  • Rachel Ann

    49? Really. Wowser someone looks closer to 59 if ya ask me.

  • Rachel Ann

    Ha this reminds me that I was 18 and my husband was 27 when we met. Not quite old and decrepit but almost lol.

  • Leasha

    Throw the 16 year old whore in prison for fucking with a man old enough to be her grandfather.. I mean, if he was spectacularly attractive, it *might* not be so bad but this dude is gross on all levels. What the actual fuck?!

  • whateverme

    He’s 35 so he’s into completely different things. I’m still like yea lets go party and he’s not. Thank god I keep busy with work and he’s out of town a lot for work. It sucks but I should’ve though about that before. Ugh I should have listend to my mom too

  • http://www.krashthrills.wordpress.com/ Anthony Mandich

    God I can’t believe how stupid this guy is. The law says a person has to be 18 years old in order to give legal consent to be penetrated sexually. 18 is plenty young enough. So why throw your life away for a 16 year old little girl? Dumb ass motherfucker.

  • mean birch

    But was she his cousin?

  • SillyCynic

    R. Lee Ermey? He is a Marine, playing a Marine in a movie…so **Drill Instructor.**

    A Drill “Sgnt” (Sgt..or Sergeant) is the Army’s “leader” in Basic Training.

    And I can see the resemblance…if you know, the resemblance is “older man with gray hair.”

  • 18th40

    You said that…not me….

  • Robert Grillot

    They should have come up to Ky, or one of the other 6 states with borders on TN, where the age of consent is 16. Sheesh.

  • sherrdbw

    I met my ex-husband when I was 20yo and he was 31. Damn, I just realized that he was over 50 percent of my age older than me.

  • sherrdbw

    Holy Shit, this guy looks 60 if he’s a day. Guess he will get a taste of the other side of the bars.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I was just wondering why the 16 yo kept those pictures of his funstick and balls on her phone. Hell, I’m 42 and I wouldn’t keep pictures of that on my phone. Just… ewwwwwww!

  • LeaveMeBe

    I’ve always liked older guys too and there is an 8 year age gap between me and my husband. We met when he was 33 & I was 25 and married a year later and I’ve never regretted it. He just turned 50 yesterday but he has never looked or acted his age so that may be why we’ve never had any issues.

  • LeaveMeBe

    It’s not true. That’s all I’ll say about that. ;)

  • Buffettgirl

    It’s the heat – I swear, it kind of melts your brain, especially if there is humidity involved…

  • Buffettgirl

    And I now have permanent brain damage from the image that flashed through my mind… ;-) (Personally, I just DON’T get how or why all these woman find him hot. He’s short and scrawny looking AND he wears skinny jeans. Yuck! I’ll take a man with a few muscles and a pair or Wranglers thanks!)

  • Buffettgirl

    Or maybe 69? (I had to, what choice did I have???)

  • BrittBrittRoss

    “If you want sympathy, look in the dictionary between SHIT & SYPHILIS! that’s where you’ll find my sympathy!” Full Metal Jacket. LOLOLOLOLOL

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    To be fair, there are some 49-year-old men who are incredibly sexy and fuckable.

    This guy isn’t one of them.

    Given that he was a cop, I’m sure he thought that the laws didn’t apply to him.

    Given that he was a cop, I hope that the judge gives him the harshest sentence possible, since his job as a cop was to ENFORCE the laws, not violate them.

  • tkaz

    It seems all the guys who were in Teen Beat in the late 80s are all weird now; Depp, Tom Cruise, Kirk Cameron….Tom Selleck is waaaaay older than me but he’ll always hold a special place in my heart because he has a very furry chest. MANLY!

  • 18th40

    My non-hairy chest is a little pissed at you right now Tkaz.

  • Buffettgirl

    Right??? That man is H-O-T even now! My 11 year old niece had a crush on him when she was about three… she would say “Auntie Rie, Magum’s ham-some!” to me every time we would watch “the Hawaii show” (Magnum P.I.)together… love that kid! ;)

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com/ Athena

    Okay. This, I will never understand. Don’t you like to lay your head on a man’s chest? Wouldn’t that tickle your ears? Maybe get in your mouth?

    I cringe at the thought.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com/ Athena

    It doesn’t really work like that. There are separate charges in most places for transporting a minor across state lines to engage in inappropriate behavior.

    No, dude should have gone solo to one of those states to do his fishing.

  • tkaz

    I don’t know, I just LIKE it. It does tickle….I just power through it. ::wagging my eyebrows at the hairy chested men::

  • tkaz

    I’m sorry…I didn’t know you were a MAN!!!

  • 18th40

    I didn’t say I was.

  • 18th40

    Wagging your eyebrows ? Somebody get this girl a hard hat and a plumbers crack.

  • tkaz

    Or maybe just less wine.

  • 18th40

    Alrighty then….I’ll let you off the hook for not being able to figure out I was a guy.

  • 18th40

    He’s a lucky man.

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    Thank you. I’m not exactly up to date on military titles, but that is an excellent picture.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Awwww! Thanks. <3 I think I'm a lucky girl.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Ewwww! No furry chests. I like a nice sprinkling of chest hair but no mats, please.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com/ Athena

    Sorry, I just happened upon this (14 hours ago isn’t that old) and, I have to admit to stalking your FB earlier (half intentionally – “Fuck You”) and, I’m going to have to say that you are both lucky. Damn good lookin’ couple.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Yea, and a BUTT!

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Rawrz!

  • BrittBrittRoss

    I thought so too, until I had my first experience with my warm fuzzy man & I LOVED IT!!! Then again, my man has soft hairs & they are pretty much confined to his chest. It. Is. Awesome.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    It can be tickly too, in a good way. Heh, heh.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Maybe the mental ward…

  • Leasha

    LMFAO apparently 4 people can’t detect sarcasm and think grandpa is smokin.

  • tkaz

    That. Made me laugh out loud.
    My husband recently had a health scare & had to have an angiogram (he’s perfectly fine) & they shaved his chest!!! It was horrible & prickly, but thankfully, it’s soft again 2 mos later. It was like, “ahhhhh…..home.”

  • tkaz

    I just had an epiphany.
    Are you from the west? I read Wranglers & I thought…..no one in the east wears those!
    I come from a long line of cowboys. Me, not so much, I like the city. But the people who raised me, where I’m FROM were MANLY MEN. You know, cowboy boots, fixin’ cars, mustached & strong……I think I like it because I grew up with that “image”.
    If that makes sense….

  • LeaveMeBe

    Bua-hahaha! “Fuck You” too. And thank you for the compliment and for stalking me. <3

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Glad to hear he’s okay & that you have your “rug” back the way you like it ;)

  • Buffettgirl

    Yes – I was born and mostly raised in Portland, OR. Spent two years as a pre-teen in Johannesburg, South Africa and my first two years of high school in Marietta, GA before moving back to Portland for good. While Portland itself isn’t very cowboy, just about everything around it is. I’ve just always preferred men that look like MEN (rough and rugged) instead of the metrosexual, skinny jean wearing Portland hipsters out there. I like being close to the city, but far enough away you can hear yourself thinking if you need to. ;)

  • Ruby Bea

    redneck skank- she is 16 and keeping nasty NUDE pics of an old man on her cell and banging him in her car? ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww being southern I guess we can only be grateful he wasnt a relative- still gross…

  • Ruby Bea

    BUT WHAT 16 YO thinks this grizzled dork is ” sexy and fuckable”?

  • http://www.myspace.com/davidschwab DavidRavenMoon

    He’s 49?? Geeze, I’m 55 and look a hell of a lot younger than him! You would think a cop would know the age of consent in his state, which happens to be 18. It’s 16 in New Jersey.

  • tkaz

    It seems like Oregon is a solid mix of both kinds.
    My husband lived there as an adolescent & his mother still does. We were in Salem & the coastal cities – I didn’t see Portland. But Portlandia has helped me there (I can’t stand that show!).
    My husband is country boy who appreciates the city. I’ve never lived anywhere else.

  • Buffettgirl

    I refuse to acknowledge that Porlandia even exists! I mean honestly, going downtown is bad enough without them putting it out there that this shit is somehow cool and hip! You know what hip assholes – boys wearing boy clothes, girls wearing girl clothes and young 20 somethings getting JOBS! We still have the “Occupy” crowd hanging around City Hall and the Park Blocks and it pisses me right the hell off! That aside, Portland is a BEAUTIFUL city and worthy of a visit the next time you get up this way! ;-)

  • BrittBrittRoss

    I know that’s a fact- Denzel Washington is 58 & he can get it!

  • tkaz

    I will! Actually, my mother in law wants to retire there.
    I’m related to one of the “occupy” crowd. I had to unfriend her on facebook because the propaganda was killing me! ;)

  • Buffettgirl

    Have you made it to Bend yet? If not, it’s awesome, check it out. That was the funniest “Occupy” crowd I saw. In the heart of very, very conservative Central Oregon/Bend was a scraggly crew of about 23 people “occupying” a rocky dirt city block… spoiled rich kids getting their protest on. I laughed so hard as we went past I almost fell off of the motorcycle! ;-P

  • tkaz

    No…but my MIL said it was a great city (town?). What happened is we went to rent a beach house in Lincoln City & for SOME stupid reason a brought a swimsuit. :P I was freezing! I’m from AZ, if anything the sun was horribly missed. So we decided the next go ’round we’d stay away from the ocean & make it more “urban”.

    My cousin isn’t a spoiled rich kid …..but she’s SO annoying! Occupy & Eat Vegan is all that comes out of her mouth. And she persecutes you if you don’t believe the same thing as her.

  • Buffettgirl

    Oh I meant the ones in Bend were spoiled rich kids… Yes – Lincoln City is cold water all year… I think you have to get to Santa Barbara before the water gets reasonable! Our coast is gorgeous, but COLD!

    Personally, I tell vegans that evolution proves that we need meat. We didn’t get the big brains we have now by eating grass and dandelions for fucks sake! Radical relatives are such a pain in the ass. My skanktastic SIL is a rabid yellow-dog Democrat and it’s SO annoying! Not because she’s a Dem and I’m not, but because she ALWAYS has to tell me why and how I’m wrong and she’s not, despite anything I may have to prove otherwise. Rabid bitch!

  • tkaz

    I won’t even get into a debate with her, I turn her off. My cowboy father in law (divorced from Salem Mother in law) raises cattle. I get cheap beef. It keeps my kids bellies full and I can afford then to buy better groceries. So I dare not knock what is filling our freezer.
    Just found out I have a sister in Washington so I see a Northwest visit in the foreseeable future….

  • Buffettgirl

    That’d be sweet! We could maybe meet and have a cocktail or two.

    Free beef??? Is your FIL looking to adopt an almost 43 year old daughter??? ;)

  • tkaz

    Or three!
    Maybe a 43 yr old WIFE. LOL, I kid…

  • Buffettgirl

    Well I was GOING to say a cocktail or 12, but I didn’t want to come off like a total lush!

    I like Boyfriend far too much to marry someone else just for beef… lmao!

  • tkaz

    Beef. It’s what’s for dinner. But not worth leaving your man for.
