NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — All charges were dismissed for a Newport News School Board member accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend, a city council member.
Marvin Harris was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Tuesday morning, but it was canceled. Police say Newport News City Council member Sharon Scott filed the charges in October.
The Newport News Commonwealth’s Attorney stated that the charges were nolle prossed because “after an extensive police investigation, there was no evidence connecting him to these crimes.”
Scott said she and Harris dated for a few years until 2014. She alleged Harris got into her home and used a knife to vandalize her walls, personal belongings, front door and car.
