3 Shelby County Clerk's employees suspended

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Three employees of the Shelby County Clerk's Office have been suspended while the Memphis Police Department and the County Attorney investigate allegations of corruption.

The Commercial Appeal reported the suspensions of Charles Nichols, Maria Bonner and Janice Garrett. Nichols oversees daily operations of the office. Bonner is a title clerk and Garrett is a clerical specialist.

The newspaper reported Bonner and Garrett faced disciplinary hearings Tuesday.

The city police began an investigation last fall into how car titles and auto registrations were handled by the clerk's office.

The charges the employees face are administrative.

Asst. County Atty. Danny Presley said the suspensions don't mark the end of the investigations.
