Richard Hodges, former mayor of the city of Millington, has agreed to resolve his case with the State of Tennessee by entering a guilty plea to the charge of facilitation of bribery.
Hodges is entering his plea this morning in an appearance in Division I of Criminal Court.
His lawyer, Tommy Parker of Baker Donelson, stated “From the start, this case has been difficult for Mr. Hodges. His wife Rita, died the day before law enforcement officers executed search warrants in this matter and interviewed him. In January 2012, Mr. Hodges resigned from his position as mayor so the city of Millington could move forward while this case proceeded. He has incurred significant financial burdens, and for the last year has also been facing major health issues and is currently battling prostate cancer. Mr. Hodges deeply regrets any distraction this case has brought to the people of Millington. His hope is that by entering this pleas he will bring resolution to this matter, allowing him to focus on his recovery and bringing closure to members of his community.”
