GIBBONS ON THE CASE 

GIBBONS ON THE CASE

The pressure continues to mount on some Shelby County officials regarding possible misuse of county funds.

On Tuesday, Shelby County District Attorney Bill Gibbons released a statement through his office announcing his request for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) to investigate activities by certain employees of the Juvenile Court Clerk's Office under Shep Wilbun and former county mayor assistant Tom Jones, all of whom have been linked to county credit-card abuses. "The purpose of the investigation is to determine whether any state criminal law violations have occurred," read the statement. It did not go into detail about what activities -- whether credit-card-related or not -- the TBI is investigating.

Jennifer Zunk, special assistant to the district attorney, said the office had no additional statement it could make as of press time. Gibbons is out of town until next week.

There is no estimated completion date for the investigations at this time.
