Wiretap case against Fall River resident dismissed after phone erased
FALL RIVER — The illegal wiretap case against George Thompson was dismissed Friday after prosecutors said they did not have enough evidence to proceed because someone erased Thompson’s iPhone while it was in police custody. Two representatives from copblock.org — a website that highlights abusive police practices — traveled from New Hampshire to attend Friday’s motion hearing. They were temporarily refused entry into the courthouse when security officers thought they were being disruptive.
