Contempt Case Dropped Against Clark Co. Jailer

Prosecutors abruptly dropped all possibility of charges against Clark County Jailer Bobby Stone Thursday, after an investigation found no evidence to support any charges. The possibility of contempt charges surfaced in February after two prisoners were released from the jail before their sentences were completed. The case was scheduled for a pre-trial conference Thursday morning before a special judge, but prosecutors instead filed a motion to dismiss the case.
