New trial for former Madison County Sheriff

Two felony charges remain against Roger Thompson

A new trial was scheduled for the former Madison County Sheriff, Roger Thompson.

The court granted the prosecution a new trial on the remaining two felony charges against Thompson during a status conference Nov. 14. 

A jury convicted Thompson of official misconduct, a misdemeanor, in Madison County’s District Court Nov. 7. The four-day trial ended in a hung jury over the felony charges of tampering with evidence and perjury. 

The trial and jury pull will take place in a different county, but it is yet to be determined where. 

The new jury trial was set for April 6, 2020.
