Taxpayers money could fund judge's pension following FBI-Investigation


Judge Casey Moreland resigned in March after an ongoing investigation with the FBI where he was accused of public corruption charges.

Reportedly taxpayers will fund an estimated $4,588 each moth for the 59-year-old's pension payment that begins in May.

A Metro Human Resources spokeswoman says Moreland could also be eligible for a $10,000 life insurance policy and medical coverage.

With or without conviction a board will declare if Moreland can continue to receive benefits, says a Nashville law director.

State law says a public official forfeits retirement benefits if convicted of a felony related to their employment.

Moreland is facing counts of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.
