D.A. rejects bribery case against former Northshore officer, tow business owner

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.
