SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A judge says he'll leave it up to a jury to decide whether or not officers planted drugs in the home of a former bank executive.
Yesterday, the judge ruled in favor of most of the defendants in a lawsuit by Dale Moroni Gibbons over his prosecution on drug and child corruption charges.
But the judge said a jury will have to decide whether two Salt Lake County sheriff's deputies planted methamphetamines in Gibbons' home.
A video shot by officers during the June 2001 search failed to show the drugs in a nightstand drawer, but a photo allegedly taken after the recording does.
Gibbons' legal troubles began 10 days before the search, when his daughter overdosed and called 9-11.
Gibbons' was charged with drug and child-corruption felonies and resigned from his job as Zions Bankcorporation chief financial officer.
A jury acquitted Gibbons in June of 2002.
