Prosecutor to drop charges in deer rescue case...
GREENSBURG, Ind. (AP) _ An Indiana prosecutor plans to drop charges of illegal possession of a white-tailed deer against a couple who nursed an injured animal back to health and kept it in an enclosure on their farm for two years.
Decatur County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Douglas Brown tells The Indianapolis Star the charges against Connersville police officer Jeff Counceller and his wife, Jennifer, will be dropped by the end of the week. He says his office made the decision after receiving a request from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to drop the charges.
Brown says his office will issue a special prosecutor's report explaining its decision once the charges have been dismissed.
Thousands of people outraged by the case have signed an online petition calling for the charges to be dropped.
