Charges Dismissed Against Russell County Sheriff's Deputy

Charges have been dismissed against a Russell County Deputy Sheriff charged with tampering with physical evidence, official misconduct, and theft by unlawful taking over $500.

The Russell County Grand Jury issued a No True Bill in the case against Nick Bertram. That means there was not enough evidence to indict him.

The case was dismissed without prejudice meaning the charges could be brought up again.

The Russell County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Bertram has been reinstated.
