This morning, shortly before 9AM, 3rd Judicial District Court Judge Driggers handed down a directed verdict in the trial of former LCPD Officer Chris Smelser. Judge Driggers told the State that they had not proven their case and dismissed 2nd degree murder charges against Chris!!!! Hallelujah!!!!
I will write more in the coming days. Congratulations to Chris and his family. I'm sorry you had to suffer through this ordeal and hope the future bestows peace and happiness upon all of you.
