Bunstine Case Dropped
(2008-08-11)
(WOUB) - Today was supposed to be the first day of his jury trial, but instead charges against former Chillicothe Law Director Ed Bunstine have been dropped.

Special Prosecutor Paul Scarsella says Special Judge James Luse threw out the indictment against Bunstine after finding insufficient language on the indictment that made it fatally flawed.

Bunstine was previously charged with three counts of tampering with evidence and two counts of obstruction of justice for creating false documents on behalf of a client of his private law practice.

Bunstine has claimed he is innocent since his indictment last November.

Scarsella says he will be returning to the grand jury later this week to try to re-indict Bunstine on the charges.
