Grover Tuten Back in Court

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Outgoing Richmond County Coroner, Grover Tuten, was back in court Monday.

Prosecutors for the case against Tuten asked the judge for a continuance in the case.

WJBF News Channel 6 cameras caught Tuten leaving the courthouse and when asked for a statement, he declined.

Tuten was indicted by a grand jury in December 2013 on 8 counts of theft by taking and 5 counts of violation of oath by a public officer.

Tuten has turned in his resignation as the Richmond County Coroner.

Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen will take over duties as the coroner until the end of the term.
