McMillan acquitted of bad check charges

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A City Stages founder has been acquitted.

George McMillan was charged with writing more than $250,000 worth of bad checks to vendors and acts during the last festival in 2009. He had signed the checks in question, along with the festival's executive director.

Because prosecutors never charged the executive director, Judge Shanta Owens says she could not find McMillan criminally liable either.
