CLINTON, LA (WAFB) -

A judge in East Feliciana Parish ruled there was not enough evidence to charge two women accused of stealing money from a non-profit organization.

Attorney Lance Unglesby said there was no probable cause to charge Alice Kent, 62, she and her alleged accomplice, Carol Shirley, 66, with stealing any money. Both women are from Clinton.

They were accused of taking money from the "Friends of Clinton Main Street."

They were charged with one count each of racketeering, malfeasance and theft, six counts each of public contract fraud, 15 counts each of filing or maintaining false public records and 196 counts each of money laundering when they were arrested back in November.
