The remaining charge against a former Nebraska sheriff candidate has been dismissed.

Donnie Brennan was arrested in October last year and spent more than three days in jail. He was charged with three felonies: filing a false candidate form, filing a false political financial statement and illegal voting.

The charges stemmed from accusations that Brennan was living in Council Bluffs, Iowa, when he filed to run for sheriff in Cass County, Neb. He also was accused of voting in a Plattsmouth election while living across the Missouri River in Iowa.

A Cass County district judge ruled in April that Nebraska law requires that a sheriff be a resident of the county he's serving only after taking office.

Court records say the voting charge remaining against Brennan
was dismissed on Tuesday.
