Thermopolis, WY – Charges have been dropped against a member of the Wyoming Parole Board who had been accused of shooting at his live-in girlfriend and threatening to kill her if she called police. Hot Springs County Attorney Jerry Williams declined Monday to
explain why he dropped the charges against James Weisbeck of Thermopolis. Williams would only say that he believed the action,is in the interest of justice.
Weisbeck's attorney, Alex Sitz, says the charges lacked merit
and he hopes the dismissal clears his client's name.
Court documents say the charges stemmed from an argument with
his girlfriend on June 15.
Weisbeck was appointed to the state Parole Board in 2004 and
reappointed in 2009. His term expires in 2015.
