A Weakley County woman, 29-year-old Tiffani Gorgan was sentenced in the 27th Judicial District Circuit Court on Monday, Nov. 27 by Judge Jeff Parham after entering a guilty plea to two charges:  Accessory After the Fact and Child Neglect, Class E Felonies. 

Grogan was sentenced to four years in the Tennessee Department of Corrections for each charge to run concurrently, but the sentences were suspended in lieu of time served. 

The charges stemmed from July 10, 2022, when Grogan and Alabama resident, 37-year-old Julien De Mone Hardin, were arrested and charged with the robbery and death of 49-year-old Terry Beard of Milan. 

Grogan and Hardin were both indicted and bound over to the May 2023 term of the Weakley County Grand Jury. Grogan was free on a $250,000 bond as well as being placed on house arrest and made to wear an ankle monitor. After being sentenced on the 27th, Grogan was removed from house arrest and the ankle monitor was removed. 

In the original police report, Grogan was charged with First Degree Murder, Especially Aggravated Assault by Weakley County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Neil Cantrell after Cantrell alleged that Gorgan had robbed and shot Beard. Grogan was later indicted on charges of Unlawful Carrying or Possession of a Weapon, Accessory After the Fact, Child Neglect or Endangerment, First Degree Murder, Especially Aggravated Robbery, and Conspiracy to Commit Especially Aggravated Robbery.

The four other charges were dismissed and Grogan will serve 41 days in jail and be on probation for a period of three years, 10 months, and 11 days.  

Hardin was denied bond and is currently incarcerated in Weakley County Jail until his January 22 court date where he will enter a plea or set the charged for trial.
