DCS loses track of violent offender, now wanted for murder
Updated: 5:29 AM, Nov 06, 2019



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) The state Department of Children's Services admits it lost track of a violent teen offender and did nothing.

Now, that teenager is wanted for murder.

It comes as NewsChannel 5 launches an unprecedented investigation of Tennessee's broken juvenile justice system.

The juvenile offender, Jeroy Green III, was involved in a violent carjacking back in 2017 when he was just 15. He is supposed to be on an ankle monitor so DCS could keep track of him, according Metro police Detective Jesse Holt.

But Green didn't keep the ankle monitor charged up, and DCS let him stay out on the streets.

Now, Metro police have issued a warrant for Green's arrest for his role in the September 28th murder of 18-year-old Samuel Calvert.

"Finding out that it had already been discharged for so long was disturbing, finding out it was uncharged the day of the homicide disturbing and then to continously have to kind of urge them along to get this corrected was more than disturbing," Detective Holt told NewsChannel 5 Investigates.

"I would have expected someone to understand that this was something that needed to be urgently dealt with."

According to police, Green's ankle monitor went dead somewhere around September 15th.

But DCS did not seek his arrest or do anything to find him.

On September 28th, Calvert was murdered.
