JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WJHL) — A 24-year-old Jonesborough man is set to appear in court Wednesday afternoon to face more than a dozen charges.

According to a release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO), Troy J. Ellison was already behind bars at the detention center when he was accused of calling a person who had a protective order against him. Phone records reportedly showed multiple phone calls.

The WCSO charged him with 17 counts of violating an order of protection and set his bond at $17,000. Ellison’s court hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.m.

A WCSO spokesperson told News Channel 11 that Ellison was originally in custody for violating a no-contact order, which was issued on May 31, 2022. Ellison allegedly violated that order on July 17 and was arrested the next day.
