On Friday, February 1, 2019, a special prosecutor with the Albertville Municipal Court recommended to a specially-appointed Albertville city judge that Scottsboro Municipal Judge Scott Berry not be prosecuted concerning an alleged minor incident and prior misdemeanor allegation of reckless endangerment which allegedly occurred at Berry’s estranged father’s residence in Albertville in early August 2018.

Berry stated that he is very pleased with this just and proper outcome, decision and result of not being prosecuted and being cleared of this entire situation and matter and he thanked his Albertville attorney, Michael Mastin, for all of Mastin’s assistance.

The terms agreed to by all parties are that the matter has been continued for 12 months and will ultimately be dismissed at such future date if a few miscellaneous conditions are met, such as Berry’s payment of the court costs (which have already been paid) and there being no future contact by, between or with the alleged victim or the alleged victim’s family, whom Berry states he does not know.

Berry stated, “I’ve had a lot of support from people who really and genuinely know my family and me concerning this unfortunate situation, and I’m very thankful and grateful for all the support I’ve received and for all my friends and colleagues who’ve encouraged me all along to remain strong and to stand upon my presumption of innocence, which I did, because I am indeed innocent of this false allegation,” said Berry.
