Senate Committee May Seek Records from DA Investigation

The Senate Judiciary Committee next week will consider a resolution directing the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to hand over all documents pertaining to the agency’s probe of 10th District Attorney General Steve Bebb. After a four-month TBI investigation, Attorney General Bob Cooper found no prosecutable criminal acts by Bebb, although Cooper did criticize Bebb’s office for poor judgment, mismanagement and deficient record keeping. As part of the panel’s oversight duties, Judiciary Committee Chairman Brian Kelsey, R-Germantown, said “we need to be ensuring everyone in the judicial branch is doing their job correctly.” The Chattanooga Times Free Press has the story.
