The grand jury declined to return indictments on several Big Spring politicians who admitted to accepting campaign contributions from corporations during their run for the city council.

As reported by the Herald on Sunday, Mayor Tommy Duncan, District 1 Councilman Marcus Fernandez and District 3 Councilman Glen Carrigan all received no-bills on allegations of accepting illegal campaign contributions, bringing the criminal case in the matter to a close. However, there is pending civil litigation, according to records with the 118th District Clerk's Office.
