ATLANTA, GA – A Fulton County Jury found Sen. Don Balfour not guilty on all 18 felony charges against him on Thursday.
Balfour was on trial for illegally claiming mileage and expense reimbursement from the state. The Snellville Republican was indicted in September for making a false certificate, theft by taking, and a count of false statement and writing. He was accused of claiming expenses, mileage pay, and double-billing the state and his private employer for some expenses.
Balfour will now be able to return to his Senate duties, and put the trial behind him.
