MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - A Shelby County employee was arrested for stealing and selling personal information of inmates at the Shelby County Jail.
40-year old Sherrita Delbridge was arrested on December 2, 2011, following an indictment by a federal grand jury. She was suspended without pay from the Criminal Justice Center the following day.
Delbridge is accused of stealing the names, addresses and social security numbers of inmates in the criminal justice center's computers, then selling them to another woman. The second suspect, also indicted in the identity theft scheme, was not a county employee.
