Brandy Thornton faces three counts of bribery of a public servant, two counts of tampering with evidence, one count of forgery, one count of criminal simulation, and six counts of official misconduct. Roberta Lynne Webb-Allen faces four counts of tampering with governmental records, two counts of forgery, two counts of criminal simulation and two counts of official misconduct. The pair were indicted on October 6th the day before the FBI raided the Sevier County courthouse.
