Charges Dropped Against Accused New Birth Burglar

Dekalb County (WAOK)-The DeKalb County district attorney has decided not to pursue burglary charges against 20-year old Anthony Boyd,  who had been accused of orchestrating a burglary at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Bishop Eddie Long who pastors the church had written several letters requesting that charges against Boyd be dropped.  DeKalb District Attorney Robert James said, the case against Boyd wasn’t worth pursuing,  since Long had indicated he would not testify against Boyd.   Boyd was accused of allowing the break-in last year, when, electronics and jewelry were stolen from the office of Bishop Long.   Boyd was not included in the recent settlement of a sexual misconduct lawsuit against Bishop Long.
