A: I suggest you contact the court clerk - if he is serving a sentence for a criminal offense, there is paperwork at the courthouse that says what he was convicted of, and what his sentence is, and whether it is to be served in the local jail or the Tennessee Department of Corrections. If he have been arrested and is awaiting trial, the paperwork will say how much is required for a bond for his release.
