Charges Dismissed Against Lowell Barron
A judge has granted a motion to dismiss criminal charges against a former state Senator and an aide. Lowell Barron and his campaign manager,Jill Johnson, were indicted in April, 2013 on charges that they misused funds in Barron's campaign account. The Alabama Attorney General's office Monday filed a motion to dismiss those charges, after losing an appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court last week. Court records indicate that the judge granted that motion the following day.
