CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Bradley County General Sessions Court Judge Sheridan Randolph is the subject of an investigation into his conduct in a burglary case, a TBI official confirmed today.
Kristin Helm, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said the state probe has been turned over to 10th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Bebb, who handles Bradley.
“We were requested by General Bebb on Sept. 29  to open a case,” she said.
Bebb said this afternoon that his office asked for a TBI investigation and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation wanted a copy of the TBI probe as well.
The case began with a burglary at Randolph’s North Ocoee Street law office in downtown Cleveland in which a number of antique firearms and other items were reported missing, according to an affidavit.
The judge has not been charged with a crime. He was on the bench today and could not be reached for comment.
