Perjury Charge Dropped Against Ex-Trooper in Sandra Bland Case – The New York Times

This charge was dropped due to a plea bargain, not because the DA did not have just cause to file the charges

“The dismissal of the perjury charge was tied to an agreement prosecutors had with Mr. Encinia. In the agreement — which was signed by prosecutors, the judge, Mr. Encinia and his lawyers — Mr. Encinia agreed to end his career as a law enforcement officer in exchange for the dismissal of the charge.”
