SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A judge has dismissed San Bernardino County Supervisor Neil Derry's misdemeanor conviction for failing to report a campaign contribution.
The Sun of San Bernardino says Judge J. David Mazurek granted a request for dismissal despite opposition from prosecutors.
Mazurek also ended Derry's probation early.
Derry pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count in a deal in which two felony charges were dismissed.
He was placed on three years of probation and ordered to pay roughly $15,000 in fines.
The agreement allowed Derry to continue serving as supervisor.
Derry was accused of laundering a $5,000 contribution from a supporter through a political action committee.
The charges were filed during an expansive investigation into county corruption that led to criminal charges against several former county officials in scandals involving the assessor's office.
