NASHVILLE (AP) – An administrator of the state's employment security system was appointed to the post while under indictment in Ohio.

Charges of money laundering, theft and abetting an unlicensed loan broker were dropped on Nov. 29, after Turner Nashe (NASH') Jr. was appointed by Tennessee officials on Nov. 14, according to The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/uOzU5K).

Nashe was among several people indicted in a mortgage fraud case. Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County, Ohio, prosecutor's spokeswoman Maria Russo said charges were "dismissed without prejudice," meaning the state isn't precluded from filing other charges in the future.

It wasn't clear whether Nashe was in his office Friday and an opportunity to respond was emailed.

Labor and Workforce Development spokesman Jeff Hentschel said charges were dropped after a thorough examination of business and personal records.
