ASHLAND CITY – A Cheatham County mother and her biological son face felony charges after a TBI investigation into allegations of child abuse following a 2020 AMBER Alert.


At the request of 23rd District Attorney General Ray Crouch, TBI special agents began investigating Coletta Jean Gorman (DOB 11-2-68) and her biological son, Alvin Robert Jensen (DOB 6-9-91). During the investigation, agents determined the two mistreated Gorman’s adopted children, one of whom became the subject of an AMBER Alert after leaving home to flee the abuse.
