CARROLLTON — A judge has dismissed an embezzlement charge against the president of the Carroll County Board of Supervisors.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that Circuit Judge Billy Bridges yesterday threw out the charge against Supervisor Lloyd “Honey” Ashmore after hearing testimony from two prosecution witnesses.

Ashmore was accused of using county labor, materials and equipment to build a bridge on the property of Ed Meek in 2003.

The state Auditor’s Office received a complaint against Ashmore in April 2007, and he was indicted in May 2008.
