Most charges dropped against Tampa clergyman

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Prosecutors have dropped 11 of 12 charges against a Tampa clergyman because they don't have enough evidence.

Bishop Charles Leigh was accused of seeking sexual favors from people doing community service.  But now he's only charged with making false statements.

Leigh told the Tampa Tribune he's the victim of a smear campaign by the Tampa Police Department.

He claims TPD has been trying to stop him from ministering to the poor and homeless in Sulphur Springs.
