Wyatt charges thrown out

It was no surprise that the felony charges against Jennifer Wyatt in the Beth Bentley missing person case were thrown out today. Woodstock Police had charged Wyatt with two counts of obstruction of justice. The State's Attorney's Office authorized the filing of the charges.

The charges looked weak from the get-go. Public Defender Kim Messer had filed a motion to have the charges dismissed, and the motion was granted this morning.

Why did Woodstock Police file them in the first place? And why did the State's Attorney's office authorize the filing of them?
