(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) -- A Memphis City Court clerk has been indicted for allegedly embezzling approximately $24,000 from the city.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Tammy Brooks Carpenter, 41, has been indicted for allegedly embezzling monetary payments from persons coming to the City Court Clerk's office to make payments after being issued motor vehicle citations, the Commercial Appeal reported.
Authorities allege that Carpenter would accept payments from customers, enter the transaction electronically, then void the transaction, and enter a smaller amount than what was actually paid. The remaining funds would then allegedly be pocketed by Carpenter for personal use, officials said.
