The Tennessee Conservative Staff –

Former Chattanooga Police Chief Celeste Murphy will be in court for the first time on Friday to face charges stemming from an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Judge Boyd Patterson will be handling the case.

Murphy resigned from her position as chief just one day before she was indicted on 17 felony and misdemeanor charges.

The charges against Murphy include one count of illegal voter registration, one count of false entries on official registration or election documents, three counts of falsifying government records, three counts of forgery, three counts of perjury, and six counts of official misconduct. 

According to the TBI, “During the investigation, agents determined Ms. Murphy knowingly entered false information on several government documents related to establishing residency in Chattanooga, though swearing to their truth in signing the documents.”

Murphy was booked at the Hamilton County Jail after turning herself in on June 27. She was released after posting a $19,000 bond.
