State bank examiner indicted by McMinn County grand jury

ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- A state bank examiner is under indictment on official misconduct charges, accused of offering a secret deal to a McMinn County business.

John Mark Stewart, 31, of Cleveland was indicted by the McMinn County grand jury on four counts.

He is accused of approaching a business owner he had met through his job and offering to examine the owner's financial records secretly for $25,000 to ensure the business would always pass a state exam.

Stewart was booked into the McMinn County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
