Tehama County District Attorney investigators arrested Roland Bennett, 49 years old of Corning for bribing a witness, and conspiracy to commit a crime on Saturday November 18th.

He was booked into Tehama County Jail with a $50,000 bail, which he later posted bail and was released.

The arrest was a result of a yearlong investigation. Bennett was the lawyer representing a person charged in Tehama County Superior Court with felony charges.

The person’s name is not being released at this time.

Over the last year Bennett approached and offered to pay the victim in the case in return for him not cooperating with the DA’s office, and not to appear in court.
