— The Johnston County district attorney has dropped charges against a man arrested by a crooked detective.

Last month, former detective Fulton Stanley pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.

Stanley admits falsifying a report saying Michael Barefoot had confessed to crimes. Barefoot, in fact, had not confessed.

Stanley was fired last fall.
