The state dropped three misconduct while in office charges against one of the disgraced Horry County police offices.

Charges were dropped on Tuesday against Luke Green, according to the Horry County Public Index. Green was indicted on three counts of misconduct and was accused of inappropriate sexual relationships with two confidential informants and making inappropriate sexual contact with a suspect during an arrest.

Officials from the state's Attorney General provided only a 12-word statement, saying that all they can say about the case is "“This was a prosecutorial decision based on the facts of the case.” Spokesman Robert Kittle said that legally, he could not say any more about the case when asked for more details about why the Attorney General's office dropped the charges.

The form to drop the charges, filed with the Horry County Clerk of Court, does not indicate a reason for the dismissal.

Green's attorney Brad Richardson said Green did not want to discuss the case with the media.

"He wants to move on with his life," Richardson said, adding Green is in a "good place."

There was no guilty plea or admission of guilt during the case, Richardson said. He said the dismissal opens the door for Green to possibly have the charges expunged in the future.

Green — along with Allen Large, Darryl Williams and Todd Cox — were indicted for misconduct in office. The cases against Cox and Williams remain active. The state dropped charges against Large after he died in January.
