Criminal Conspiracy Case Against Grand Forks Attorney Dismissed

Posted: Updated:
The case against a Grand Forks attorney accused of criminal conspiracy to tamper with an informant has been dismissed.

Henry Howe was originally facing a Conspiracy to Commit Murder charge, but that charge was later reduced to Conspiracy to Tamper with a Witness or Informant in a Criminal Case. The case has now been dismissed completely, with the Walsh County state's attorney saying that new evidence is calling into question old evidence against Howe. The state no longer has proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Howe committed the crime.

Original court documents said Howe allegedly conspired with others to tamper with an informant for the Grand Forks Narcotics Task Force. The other men involved in this case, Paul F. Lysengen and Wesley W. Smith, both remain in Walsh County jail and both face a charge of Conspiracy to Tamper with a Witness. There are no plans to dismiss their charges.
