Deputy Suspended For Possible Jury Tampering

Charles Govan

(Memphis) A Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy has been suspended while he’s investigated for jury tampering.

Two women on the jury in the trial of a youth minister accused of rape say Govan approached them and said, ‘You know what to do when you get upstairs. It’s a circumstantial case. Get this (expletive) over with.”

They told the judge in the case and a mistrial was declared.
