MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Authorities in Tennessee are looking into whether a Memphis, Tennessee man took money from teachers who paid to have other people take their certification exams.
58-year-old Clarence Mumford faces a 45 count indictment. Prosecutors say he allegedly made tens of thousands of dollars from a scheme that operated between 1995 - 2010. It involved teachers and aspiring teachers in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
The alleged scam involved nearly 70 teachers. Charging documents show Mumford charged teachers between $1,500 - $3,000 per exam. Authorities with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations say he allegedly collected teachers' IDs and made fake driver's licenses.
