Prosecutors will not pursue criminal charges in the unusual November case of a man and two female friends who restrained the man's wife with electrical tape so he could take her to a doctor
The State Attorney's Office last week dropped false imprisonment charges against Terry R. Hemphill, 54, Jamie J. Popa, 34, and Laurie Lynn Miller, 33. A domestic battery charge against Hemphill also was dropped.
Largo police arrested the three after finding they had bound Hemphill's wife, Cathleen, with electrical tape. Police were summoned to the Largo home after a neighbor reported seeing a suspicious vehicle in the area.
