MEMPHIS – An investigation by special agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment and arrest of a former Shelby County Assistant District Attorney General, three former Memphis Police Department employees, a Memphis attorney, and four others on various charges.

General Weirich subsequently recused herself from the case and 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway was appointed as District Attorney General Pro Tem. During the course of the investigation, agents developed information that former 30th District Assistant District Attorney General Glenda Adams, Egypt Berry, Latausha Blair, Renatta Dillard, Roderick Harvey, Marcus Lewis, personal injury attorney Aaron Neglia, Martin Nolan, and Mustafa Sajid were responsible for an elaborate scheme to profit from the use of confidential information in Memphis police reports.
