Perjury case dropped against former South Texas DA

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A perjury case against a former South Texas district attorney has been dismissed.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (http://bit.ly/1awop2C ) reports the case against former Nueces County District Attorney Anna Jimenez was dismissed Tuesday after her attorneys and the Jackson County district attorney filed motions for it be dropped.

Jimenez, now a public defender, was indicted last month on four counts of aggravated perjury related to a capital murder case.

The indictment said Jimenez signed affidavits stating four witnesses refused to be interviewed but three gave interviews to Jimenez's mitigation specialists or investigators. A fourth wasn't contacted.

Jimenez's attorney said in the motion that when Jimenez signed the affidavits, the four witnesses hadn't given interviews, but she explained recent contact to the grand jury.
