State moves to dismiss indictment against Lowell Barron and Rhonda Johnson
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Attorney General Luther Strange moved to dismiss the indictment against former state senator Lowell Barron and campaign staffer Rhonda Johnson Monday.
Barron and Johnson were indicted last year for violating state campaign and ethics laws, including allegations stating Barron circulated more than $50,000 in campaign funds back to himself.
Friday, the Alabama Supreme Court denied the Attorney General Strange’s appeal in Barron’s prosecution. The attorney general cited this as one of the reasons for moving to dismiss the indictment.
