KNOXVILLE — The official misconduct case against former Knox County Trustee John Duncan III was dismissed Thursday.

Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz dismissed the case and also signed an order expunging all records of the case.

Duncan was not present at the hearing.

Duncan, the son of U.S. Rep. John J. “Jimmy” Duncan Jr. and nephew of state Sen. Becky Duncan Massey, pleaded guilty in July 2013 to the felony charge, and resigned from office.
