Stapley was indicted in December on charges he failed to disclose some business and real estate interests to the public.

The judge ruled Tuesday the county had never brought its financial disclosure laws into compliance with state statutes, so there were no rules to break.

Stapley is still facing 66 other counts including perjury.
