An ouster proceeding in June 2009 got constable Mark Patton kicked out of office.
It also proved fatal to the state’s criminal case against Patton.
On Monday, the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals threw out a three-count indictment against Patton because he was compelled to testify.
“Once they called him as a witness, they pretty much destroyed their criminal case against him because they couldn’t make him testify at the ouster proceeding and still proceed criminally against him,” Patton attorney Chris Cawood said.
