Millington Mayor Charged with Bribery

Posted By on Wed, Oct 12, 2011 at 4:33 PM

A state grand jury has charged Millington Mayor Richard Hodges with two counts of bribery. He is accused of soliciting money in exchange for political favors.

Hodges was arrested at his office at 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday. The charges stem from a months-long investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Shelby County District Attorney's Office. The TBI investigation into Millington government corruption began in December, but it wasn't made public until July. The investigation is ongoing.
