Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

MONT­GOMERY — At­tor­ney Gen­eral Luther Strange an­nounced the ar­rest of a for­mer em­ployee of the Tuscaloosa County District Court on four felonies: sec­ond-de­gree crim­i­nal pos­ses­sion of a forged in­stru­ment, in­ten­tional use of of­fice for per­sonal gain, and two counts of so­lic­it­ing or re­ceiv­ing any­thing for the pur­pose of cor­ruptly in­flu­enc­ing of­fi­cial ac­tion. Quen­ton Wes­ley, 46, of Tuscaloosa, sur­ren­dered to the Tuscaloosa County Sher­iff’s Of­fice on Dec. 9 and was later re­leased on a $17,500 bond.

The charges arise from his for­mer po­si­tion as a Tuscaloosa County District Court Bailiff. At­tor­ney Gen­eral Strange’s Spe­cial Prose­cu­tions Divi­sion pre- sented ev­i­dence to a Tuscaloosa County grand jury on Novem­ber 30, re­sult­ing in Wes­ley’s in­dict­ment* on De­cem­ber 9. Specif­i­cally, the in­dict­ment charges that Wes­ley in­ten­tion­ally used his of­fi­cial po­si­tion or of­fice to ob­tain per­sonal gain for him­self or a busi­ness with which he is as­so­ci­ated, Good Times Night Club; that he in­ten­tion­ally so­licited or re­ceived money from two in­di­vid­u­als for the pur­pose of cor­ruptly in­flu­enc­ing of­fi­cial ac­tion; and that he pos­sessed a forged in­stru­ment in vi­o­la­tion of Alabama law.

No fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the in­ves­ti­ga­tion or about Wes­ley’s al­leged crimes other than that stated in the in­dict­ment may be re­leased at this time.
