PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Prosecutors have dismissed their case against one of two members of a South Portland family accused of perjury in connection with a towing business and a dispute with police.
The case against Vincent Maietta was dismissed by the Cumberland County District Attorney's Office on Thursday because of "insufficient evidence."
The Portland Press Herald reports that the case against his brother, Robert Maietta, also on a charge of perjury, remains pending and is scheduled for a hearing Oct. 31, when his attorneys will move to have his case dismissed.
The brothers, who own Maietta Towing Co. in Scarborough, were indicted in connection with statements they made at hearings this spring into allegations that their company charged a vehicle owner more than $1,400 to tow a vehicle from an accident scene.
