Charges dismissed against school board member

Charges against a member of the Perry County Board of Education have been dismissed.

James Ritchie was charged with fourth degree assault last year after former Vicco Mayor Harry Ward filed a complaint alleging the board member assaulted him at Vicco Days.

The Hazard Herald reports charges were dropped on the condition that Ritchie take no action to file charges against Ward.
