A judge has dropped all charges against a former East Tennessee sheriff.

Former Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris was facing six counts of official misconduct.

Prosecutors said Harris used county inmates to clean up some of the sheriff's private property.

During the second day on trial, Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood dismissed all charges against Harris. He said there wasn't enough evidence to support the claims.
