Two more indicted in Shelby County Clerk's Office bribery scandal

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - The manager of a Mid-South car dealership is one of two people tied to a widespread bribery scandal.

Nancy Life and Jacqueline Denson are the latest to face charges in the vehicle registration scandal still rocking the Shelby County Clerk's Office.

"I can confirm today that these two individuals have been indicted by the Grand Jury," said Bill Gibbons, Shelby County District Attorney.

There have already been a number of indictments, arrests and terminations of clerk's office employees accused of bending the rules and customers looking to get around them.

Life was an office manager at Gossett Motors who, according to previously released records, provided gift cards and cast to at least one clerk's office employee.

Life was indicted Thursday on two counts of bribery.

Life's husband said his wife was only being nice.

Denson, 52, was arrested at the clerk's office in Downtown Memphis where she works as a title clerk and is accused of accepting bribes at least six times.

"It really undermines the confidence of the public on our system of government when we have different rules for different people," Gibbons said.

Both women indicted Thursday bonded out of jail by the evening.
