NASHVILLE – Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents received indictments for a former Nolensville Police Department officer accused of misconduct.

At the request of 21st District Attorney General Kim Helper, TBI special agents started an investigation involving Charles Nathan Terry on April 23, 2013. During the investigation, agents said they developed information that in 2012 and 2013, Terry solicited and received inappropriate images of a minor female on his cellphone.

After TBI and FBI agents interviewed Terry, investigators said they learned he attempted to have the child’s cellphone destroyed so the text messages and images could not be collected as evidence in the case. Terry subsequently resigned his position with the department May 16, 2013.

On July 14, a Williamson County grand jury returned indictments for Terry, charging the Hendersonville man with one count of official misconduct and one count of solicitation of tampering with evidence. Terry was booked into the Williamson County Jail on Monday and released after posting $5,000 bond.
