Fourth District Congressman Scott DesJarlais could have faced stiffer penalties for engaging in sex with patients if the charge had been more current. The head of the state's Medical Disciplinary Board recently imposed a $500 fine against DesJarlais in the wake of information that was made public last year. Officials say the fine would have been higher if the charges resulted from activity in the last year or so and not 13 years ago. DesJarlais could have faced suspension of his license. The head of the disciplinary board said he would have considered an ethics course or probation, but opted for the fine since the allegations stem back to 2000. The Congressman did not contest the fine.
Tennesseans who have not taken the GED® high school equivalency test or who have passed some but not all parts of the GED® have only the remainder of 2013 to earn their high school credential under the current test structure. According to officials, beginning January 1, 2014, partial test scores will be invalid and will not transfer to the new high school equivalency test. At that time, Tennesseans will have a choice of taking either the new 2014 GED® test or an alternative high school equivalency test designed by the Educational Testing Service called HiSET® in order to earn a high school equivalency diploma. According to the GED® Testing Service, more than a million adults nationwide have started but not finished the current GED® test. Last year, more than 9,000 Tennesseans earned GED® diplomas, but Tennessee still has more than 930,000 adults without a high school diploma or its equivalent.
