Charges Dropped Against Former Officer

8-7-06 Fannin County prosecutors have dropped possession of child pornography charges against a former honey grove police officer.

Larry Phillips was indicted back in January of 2003 when pornographic pictures were found on his work computer.

But the Fannin County DA has dismissed those charges due to a lack of evidence.

Richard Glaser says there was no way to determine the ages of the people in the images and that at least five people had access to the computer where they were found.

In the end they could not establish a link between Phillips and the pictures.

The US attorney's office also took a look at the case and declined it for the same reasons.
