Court documents show a judge has dismissed criminal charges against Governor Ernie Fletcher.

Special Judge David Melcher said in the order dismissing the charges that the governor acknowledges that the evidence strongly indicates wrongdoing by his administration with regard to personnel actions with the merit system.

Melcher said the governor has acknowledged that that the actions were inappropriate, and that he regrets their occurrence and accepts responsibility for them as head of the executive branch of government.
