Two Felony Charges Dropped Against Former Clark County

Two felony charges have been dropped against former Clark County Commissioner Lynette Boggs, but she still faces two other felony counts.

Clark County District Judge Donald Mosley on Friday dropped one count of perjury and one count of filing a false document.

Friday's hearing centered on accusations that Boggs tried to get around campaign finance laws by paying her baby sitter with campaign funds in 2006 and listing those payments as "special events" campaign expenses.

Mosley said he didn't think it had been show that Boggs willfully tried to mislead.

Boggs still faces two felony counts of perjury and filing a false document stemming from allegations that she lived in a house outside her district and lied about it.

Boggs has pleaded not guilty to the counts, and is set to go to trial March 31.
