Downtown Group Investigation

The case against the former head of a non-profit agency in Dothan will likely end up in the hands of a grand jury.

An audit revealed some $25,000 in misspent funds by former downtown group director Lana Smitherman.

Smitherman repaid the money and no charges were filed.

Dothan Police are now investigating and will turn their findings over to District Attorney Doug Valeska.

Police have not indicated exactly when they plan to send the case to the district attorney for further consideration.
