Wilson Bank & Trust faces more trouble over former branch manager

Stan Hayes, the former manager for Wilson Bank & Trust's Murfreesboro branch, is bringing more headaches to the bank's leadership. Murfreesboro bar owner Amanda Gallagher and Tony Hinson have sued the bank over Hayes' actions, which Gallagher says have resulted in two foreclosures and almost $3 million in damages. In a piece in the Murfreesboro Post, Gallagher's tone is a lot stronger than that of home builder Ken Howell.

“I was never late on any payment,” Gallagher said. “Yet, they immediately placed the loan into default with the first month of the loan and began charging me 18 percent interest without my knowledge. They never sent a letter or called me, and even today, I have been unable to obtain documentation that shows I defaulted on my loan.”

$7.5M fraud verdict against Wilson Bank & Trust

A Rutherford County jury has ordered Wilson Bank & Trust to pay $7.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages to home builder Ken Howell, his wife and two of his companies. Howell had sued after former Wilson branch manager Stan Hayes had manipulated his entities' loan accounts by forging signatures. The bank may appeal the verdict; Howell says he simply wants to close the book on the episode.

“They need to make the victims whole, and we both need to move on,” Howell said. He noted that he owes several local companies money after closing his business and plans to “square up” his accounts.
