LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto says she won't appeal a judge's dismissal of a criminal case accusing Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki and an aide of misappropriating funds from a state college savings program.
Masto said in Las Vegas on Thursday that there's merit to the case, and that she's satisfied her office shined a light on what she says was an elected official who misused his power.
She says it's just not in the best interest of the state to proceed any further.
Lawyers for Krolicki and his top aide, Kathryn Besser, insist they did nothing wrong handling the $3 billion program when Krolicki was state treasurer.
No money was ever found to be missing.
