Darius Little, who ran for a seat on the City Council last fall and recently has been accused of failing to return a rental television and taking on legal work without officially being a lawyer, issued a statement this morning announcing that the office of Durham's district attorney had dismissed the rental property charges against him.

A clerk of district court could not confirm the dismissal of the charges until records are returned later this afternoon. In his statement, Little said he used his name to rent a TV for a poor family, who then failed to return it.

Little still has two pending charges of obtaining property by false pretenses that will be visited in Durham district court May 18. The charges stem from accusations late last year that through his mediation and consulting business, he took money for legal services he didn't, and legally couldn't, provide.

In an e-mail today, Little noted that he has updated his consulting website to note that he is not a lawyer and cannot resolve legal matters for clients.

Sounds like hitting the accelerator on gentrification and push out. More hand outs for developers.
