Clarksville bribery charges

Clarksville, Tenn. – A Clarksville man is charged with accepting substantial bribes to place more than a half million dollars in contracts to favored companies.

A federal indictment says 38-year-old Army captain, Bryant Williams accepted the bribes while in Baghdad from 2005 to 2006.

Williams pleaded not guilty to mail fraud and bribery today (Monday). Defense attorney David Greenfield said Williams' 17-year Army career was otherwise unblemished. He is free on bond.
