Charges Dismissed In Witness-Tampering Case

aberdeen, sd

A judge has dismissed the remaining charges against two Aberdeen residents on trial in an alleged witness-tampering case because of a lack of evidence.

Judge Gene Paul Kean dismissed witness tampering and perjury-related charges filed against former Brown County prosecutor Brandon Taliaferro and Shirley Schwab, a former court advocate for juveniles and families on Thursday. Both charges were felonies.

The two were accused in a case in which prosecutors say a sexual abuse victim was influenced to give false testimony.

The judge had earlier dismissed misdemeanor charges in the case.
