A visiting judge has now dismissed all four counts filed against former Assistant Columbiana County Prosecutor John Gamble.

Senior Assistant Ohio Attorney General tells 21 News that visiting judge David Stucki granted his request to dismiss two counts of complicity to commit an offense because there was no evidence that Gamble encouraged two police officers to take part in political activity, in violation of an Ohio law known as the "Little Hatch Act".

On Thursday, Judge Stucki dismissed the remaining two counts, ruling that there wasn't enough evidence, according to defense attorney John Juhasz.

Gamble was charged following a Facebook message he posted during a failed political campaign for the top spot in the prosecutor's office.

At issue was Gamble's Facebook page, which showed pictures of him posing with local law enforcement officers posted after Gamble was endorsed by the county Democratic Party to run as their candidate for county prosecutor.

Democratic Gamble lost the race to a current prosecutor, Republican Vito Abruzzino. 

The complaint alleged that Gamble was an accomplice in violating Ohio's law prohibiting political activity, other than voting, by classified civil service employees.

The complaint specifically named two East Liverpool Police Officers, neither of whom were charged in the case.
