Nashville Criminal Court Clerk Investigated

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Prosecutors in Nashville have begun an investigation into Criminal Court Clerk David Torrence following broadcast reports that he works just three days a week and uses his government vehicle for personal errands.
District Attorney General Torry Johnson on Friday said Nashvillians are upset by the actions of Torrence, who is elected.
After the stories aired on WSMV-TV, members of the Metro Council presented a resolution calling for Torrence’s resignation.
He has told the station he takes Wednesday and Friday off every week, and that his office is efficient and well run. He has not responded to the call for his resignation.
Johnson told a news conference the investigation will review records from the past several years.
