Garvey Acquitted
(WOUB) - A retired Belpre Police Officer has been acquitted on all counts in Washington County Common Pleas Court.

David Garvey was facing obstructing justice, theft in office and tampering with evidence charges related to a case he handled in June of 2007.

He was also charged with bribery from a Mayor's Court case in 2004.

Garvey's attorney Dennis Sipe says the state presented its case today and when that was over, he asked the judge to consider a motion to throw out the charges based on a lack of evidence.

The judge found that there wasn't sufficient evidence on all four counts and dismissed the case.

Garvey's trial started Wednesday.
