Apr a judge of state court threw out an assault charge today against a former special Deputy sheriff accused of wounding a civil rights worker during an outbreak of racial violence in Lowndes county last year. The decision by circuit judge Werth Thagard Means that the defendant Thomas l. Coleman cannot be indicted again and cannot be tried for the Shotgun attack on the Rev. Richard Morrisroe a White Catholic priest from Chicago. Immediately afterwards the court got ready for the trial of a Kun flux Klansman Eugene Thomas on a murder charge in the killing of Viola Gregg Liuzzo. Another White civil rights Volunteer. The dismissal of the assault and Battery indictment against Coleman came when state atty. Gen. Richmond Flowers asked the judge to nol pros the charge. Which would have meant simply to drop it for want of prosecution but leave the Way open for a later grand jury to return another and perhaps More serious indictment. After a conference in an adjoining room Thagard dismissed the assault and Battery charge a with prejudice which Means no other indictment can be returned in that Coleman 56, a one time special officer and a Highway Engineer by profession sat among the spectators in the courtroom. Flowers has said repeatedly he feels Coleman should have been indicted on a More serious charge than assault and Bat Tery which carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $500 Fine. Dismissal of the lesser indictment would leave the Way open for a later grand jury to charge Coleman with a More serious offence. Moms Roe 26, was critically wounded and a companion Seminary student Jonathan Daniels of Keene. N.h., was slain by Coleman aug. 20, 1965, while the two clergymen were in Lowndes county helping negroes in a voter registration drive. Coleman admitted shooting both men but claimed self defense. It was questionable whether the special Deputy would go to trial this week regardless of Tea Gard a ruling because the murder charge against Thomas 43, in the slaying of mrs. Liuzzo had priority on the docket. Mrs. Liuzzo the wife of teamsters Union official Anthony Liuzzo was slain by gunshots from a passing car March 25, 1965, after the Selma to Montgomery civil rights March. She had joined others in the March and was driving negroes Back to Selma.
