The state attorney's race was one of the most ruthless campaigns in local political history. Now, one of the issues raised by the losing candidate, Sister Blackmon-Milligan, has resurfaced.
Bay County sheriff's deputies have arrested 24-year-old Ryan Meadows, charging him with burglary and grand theft.
The charges stem from a break-in on North Lagoon Drive at the beach on October 25 about a week before the election.
Meadows is the nephew of newly elected State Attorney Steve Meadows.
During the campaign, Blackmon-Milligan accused Meadows of showing preferential treatment to a relative who'd been arrested.
In all likelihood Meadows will request a special prosecutor to handle this latest case.
