McALESTER - Prosecutors have dropped a conspiracy charge against a former Pittsburg County special judge after he agreed never to hold public office again and to pay $4,717 in restitution to the state Auditor and Inspector's Office.
William H. "Bill" Layden Jr., 62, was accused in the 2011 felony case of conspiring to obstruct an embezzlement investigation involving Pittsburg County's drug court, which he oversaw.
The investigation resulted in an embezzlement indictment against former drug court administrator Angela Marcum, 41.
Marcum is accused in the pending case of embezzling more than $27,950 in fees collected from drug court participants.
