Contempt of court charge dropped against Willhoite

Almost two years and eight months after Adam Horine was transported to Florida rather than Eastern State Hospital, the case has finally been closed. Carrollton Police Chief Mike Willhoite and CPD Officer Ron Dickow were acquitted of criminal charges in March 2016, and Dickow’s actions were ruled not contemptuous in October 2016. However, Judge Karen Thomas’ decision to hold Willhoite in contempt was suspended, and he was ordered to create a community collaborative addressing mental health issues in Carroll County.
