NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The cousin of a former Metro councilman Loniel Greene was found guilty Wednesday of multiple charges.

Tavares Buchanan was arrested in December 2015 and charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

Greene and Buchanan were accused of trying to talk Buchanan’s ex-girlfriend out of testifying against him.

During a bond hearing for Buchanan, Greene admitted to lying under oath regarding where money for Buchanan’s bond came from.

Greene is accused of attempting to coerce a domestic violence victim who was allegedly abused by Buchanan.

Greene pleaded not guilty to coercion in March 2016. Buchanan is expected to be sentenced on May 14.
