JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) – Two people in Jefferson County are facing several charges after they allegedly forged documents in an attempt to remove one of them from a sex offenders list.

The TBI began an investigation at the request of 4th District Attorney General James Dunn.

Bundy turned himself in on Tuesday and was booked into the Jefferson County jail on a $15,000 bond. Cervino turned herself in Thursday and booked into jail on a $30,000 bond.
