GREENEVILLE, TN (WJHL) – Greeneville police have confirmed they’ve charged a county commissioner with patronizing prostitution.
Hilton Seay currently serves as a Greene County commissioner, and is a former principal of Greeneville High School.
Police served Seay, 75, with a criminal summons Wednesday for patronizing prostitution, a Class A misdemeanor charge.
A 28-year-old woman called the police department on April 28 to report an older white male with gray hair and glasses trying to solicit her for sex. A witness then told police the man kept motioning for her to come over to his car, but the victim said what happened to her and told the witness to stay away.
Both women told police this has happened on previous occasions as well.
The next day, both women picked Seay out of a photo line-up as the person who solicited them for sex.
His first court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning at 8:30.
Police tell us any further questions will have to be directed to district attorney’s office.
