Former juvenile court clerk sentenced to 18 months probation

The man who led federal investigators into the Tennessee Waltz corruption sting was sentenced to probation Tuesday.

Darrell Catron, a former Shelby County Juvenile Court Clerk, pleaded guilty in 2003 to an embezzlement charge that prompted federal investigators to begin an investigation into public corruption.

The resulting sting, named Tennessee Waltz, led to the indictments of high profile politicians like John Ford, Katherine Bowers, Ward Crutchfield, and more.

Catron's sentence was delayed while many of the Tennessee Waltz cases played out in court.

For his cooperation in the sting, Catron was sentenced to 18 months probation.
