CROSSVILLE — A man accused of violating his habitual motor vehicle offender law status and with assaulting an officer has pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Criminal Court and was sentenced to two years in prison.

Bruce Edward Adkisson, 46, whose last known address was listed on Storie Ave., pleaded guilty to the indictment and received a two-year sentence for violating his ban on driving, and a six-month sentence for assault. Both sentences are to run at the same time.
