Charges have been dropped against a Las Vegas police lieutenant who was accused of theft and burglary.
District Judge David Barker dismissed the charges against Lt. Juanita Goode, who was facing felony counts of falsifying loan information to purchase a $600,000 home in Las Vegas.
"We’re thrilled the case has been dismissed and Lieutenant Goode can get back to living a normal life," said Richard Schonfeld, her attorney.
Barker granted Goode’s motion to dismiss the charges in part because prosecutors didn’t provide evidence in the case, Schonfeld said.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Scott Mitchell, who was prosecuting Goode, could not be reached for comment.
Authorities accused Goode of claiming falsely that she worked a second job in order to qualify for a loan.
Authorities also said she claimed in 2004 to be making $5,200 a month on top of her monthly police salary of $7,800 a month,
Goode has been with the Metropolitan Police Department since 1992.
