Embattled former Idaho State Historical Society Director Steve Guerber dodged a bullet Wednesday when Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower declined to press charges related to alleged travel spending irregularities.
Guerber had been subject of some pretty intense investigations within state government as well as in the media. He always maintained his innocence, attributing the problems to sloppy record keeping on his part and fiscal staff problems within the agency.
In a statement Bower said, “This office has reviewed the evidence gathered by the Controller’s investigation and the applicable case law including the decision of the Idaho Court of Appeals in State v. Pruett, 143 Idaho 151 (Ct.App.2006) and decided that no criminal charges will be filed against Mr. Guerber.”
