TRI-CITIES, TN (WJHL)- A Tri-Cities plumber that is facing felony charges for his work as a contractor pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday.

Glenn Harris appeared in a Sullivan County courtroom on two different cases. He is facing two misdemeanor and two felony charges in a case involving homeowner Kim Taylor. Earlier this year, Taylor told News Channel 11 that she paid Harris several thousand dollars up-front to build her a home in Sullivan County in 2015, but said he never completed the job. Harris is charged with misapplication of contract payments, violation of contractor license requirement, violation of professional license, and theft in the case.

Harris also pleaded not guilty to six charges stemming from another case where he is accused of giving alcohol to a minor and tampering with evidence. A trial date in that case is tentatively set for January. Harris is due back in court in Sullivan County on Dec. 14th.

News Channel 11 also learned Harris is facing a theft over $1,000 charge in Washington County stemming from a 2013 incident. A Washington County court document shows a woman is accusing Harris of not finishing a contracting job to remodel her bathroom. The victim said she paid Harris $5,000 up-front for the job. Harris was arrested last week in the case. A trial date is set for October 27th.
