Former Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks yesterday pleaded guilty to falsification of an election document in connection with her run for Shelby County Juvenile Court Clerk, Local Memphis reports. On her campaign paperwork, Brooks claimed to live in Midtown though neighbors dispute that. Brooks, who until yesterday had not been charged with a crime, entered an Alford plea, which allowed her to maintain her innocence while admitting the government had enough evidence to find her guilty of the crime.
