Davidson County District Attorney General Torry Johnson today confirmed that he has received the State Comptroller’s audit of the Davidson County Clerk’s office. Johnson requested that audit, along with a TBI investigation, in July 2011, as a result of news stories and anonymous allegations to the DA’s office of improprieties within the Clerk’s office.
“This has been an extensive and time-intensive investigation,” Johnson says. “It has required the review of a considerable number of records and files. Dozens of people have been interviewed during this process. Our office has been in frequent contact with both agencies as this investigation has continued.”
Johnson says he recently received the completed TBI investigative file of its findings and is in the process of reviewing it. “Because this is still an on-going investigation, we can’t speak to any specifics at this stage,” Johnson says. “Our office is reviewing the information gathered by both the TBI and the State Comptroller’s office to determine whether sufficient evidence exists to warrant action by our office.”
