PEARL RIVER, La. -- Bribery charges against a former reserve police officer and his new employer will not be heading to a courtroom.
In July, Jimmy Wallace and Ronnie Marshall were arrested by Pearl River Police. The arrest report said Wallace, the former officer, offered a current police officer $500 to get information and pictures from within the department, which would allegedly benefit Marshall, the owner of a local towing company.
However, the 22nd Judicial District Attorney's Office recently rejected prosecution of the charges, closing the case for good.
“I did not believe we could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the alleged conduct constituted public bribery,” said D.A. Warren Montgomery.
