The following is a press release from 31st Judicial District Attorney Chris Stanford:
14th Judicial District Attorney General (Coffee County) Craig Northcott previously became aware of numerous allegations of potential criminal activity by one or more members of the Tullahoma Board of Mayor and Alderman and/or others. General Northcott and his Investigators promptly secured vital evidence known to them at that time. Then, General Northcott requested a substitute or pro tem prosecutor to fully investigate the allegations of possible criminal activity. General Northcott requested a pro tem investigation to ensure transparency, independence, and impartiality should a decision be made to charge any criminal offenses. The District Attorney General’s Conference then assigned the 31st Judicial District Attorney General’s Office to begin a criminal investigation of the situation.
As my office conducted an independent investigation into the various allegations of criminal activity, I concluded that former Tullahoma City employee and current Tullahoma City Alderman, Kurt Eldon Glick, used the powers inherent in his position as Alderman to engage in prohibited criminal conduct. Based on my office’s investigation findings, on July 11, 2023, Kurt Eldon Glick was indicted on two counts of Official Misconduct.
31st Judicial District Attorney Chris Stanford stated that ensuring accountability and punishment for government officials who commit crimes during the performance of their official governmental duties is necessary in upholding the principle of Justice, maintaining public trust, and preserving the integrity of our system of government. My office will not tolerate misconduct and criminal behavior by any government official.
According to the Warren County District Attorney’s office, Glick is scheduled to appear or be arraigned at the Coffee County courthouse on July 28.
According to the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department, he was booked and released from the Coffee County Jail Friday, where he posted a cash bond for a $12,000 bond.
