The brother of convicted Jefferson County courthouse shooter Bartholomew Granger is now a free man.

Lyndon Granger was released from the Jefferson County jail today after a charge of indecency with a child was dropped.

His attorney, Bruce Smith, tells 12News HD the accuser did not want to pursue charges.

Lyndon was charged in the same case Bartholomew was on trial for in March 2012 when he opened fire at the courthouse, killing a Deweyville woman.
