Man charged with bribery no longer at Alabama DPS
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Officials say a man accused of taking bribes at the Alabama Department of Public Safety no longer works for the agency.
Public Safety spokeswoman Robyn Litchfield says 56-year-old James E. Potts left the department in November 2008. He was an assistant supervisor in the identification unit.
While the current state employee directory shows Potts still works at the department, Litchfield says that listing is outdated.
Federal prosecutors in Montgomery say Potts and another man were indicted in an alleged scheme involving bribes for a system that uses fingerprints to check on criminal backgrounds.
Federal defenders representing Potts didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
