Rep. Ringo: Royce Chigbrow Is Lucky

tories abound related to Commissioner Chigbrow’s habit of using his position to favor some, and intimidate others.  In fact, he was officially investigated over several months on suspicion of failing to appropriately deposit checks from a taxpayer.  The allegations included his providing confidential information to a friend and receiving stolen checks totaling more than $30,000. As luck would have it, Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower announced he won’t prosecute despite evidence of wrongdoing because a statute of limitations expired on one complaint.  He found evidence on other complaints insufficient to prosecute. Prosecutor Bower received the complaint before the statute of limitations ran out. His investigation extended beyond the deadline.  Surely he was aware of timelines/Rep. Shirley Ringo, Idaho Democratic Party. More here.

Question: Did Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower blow it by not prosecuting former Tax Commissioner Royce Chigbrow?
