CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Recent court testimony indicates that an East Tennessee police chief knew of allegations of statutory rape and drug abuse against some of his officers in 2008 but did not launch a direct investigation into the claims.

The officers later were arrested, fired and pleaded guilty to sex acts with teenage girls.
