Fallout continues from Marshall County drug roundup

MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

More fallout has come from a problematic Marshall County Sheriff's office drug roundup.

At the request of prosecutors on Friday, a Marshall County judge ordered all defendants in the round-up not be required to be subject to drug and alcohol testing until the district attorney's office's review of the cases is complete.

District Attorney Everett Johnson says it is costly for the defendants and wants to treat everyone fairly.

The round-up came under question when charges for Dana Keller were dismissed earlier this week after it was determined there was faulty video evidence in the case.

That prompted prosecutors to order a review of all video evidence in all of the roundup cases.

Attorneys for a second suspect Timothy Lane Buckelew filed a motion Thursday for an immediate dismissal saying his client was in Ohio at the time of the alleged drug deal. 

Johnson anticipates the review of these cases will be completed within a matter of days.
