BREAKING NEWS: Linam case "settled"

By Staff
Terry Desmond Linam will enter a pretrial diversion program in a child abuse case, court officials said Monday.
Linam, 44, had been charged with three counts of aggravated child abuse and three counts of domestic violence. Charges against him will eventually be dropped, his attorney Laura Grantham said Monday morning.
Charges against Linam's wife, Tracy, had already been dropped.
Grantham said she was not satisfied by the agreement, but thought it was best for Linam.
The grand jury indictment in the case alleged several acts of physical abuse against Linam's children.
