The case against a former sheriff’s training specialist, convicted in a corruption scandal involving the falsification of training records for pay raises for Sheriff’s Department employees, was dismissed Friday and her probation was terminated early.

San Bernardino Superior Court Judge Michael A. Smith dismissed the case against Angela Gray after her attorney, Grover Porter, filed a motion requesting the dismissal.

Prosecutor Dan Silverman did not object.

Under a plea agreement, Gray pleaded no contest in August to one misdemeanor count of aiding in a crime and was sentenced to 16 months of probation and was ordered to pay a total of $1,980 in fines and restitution.

The dismissal cut short Gray’s probation by 13 months.

“The court granted Ms. Gray’s motion to terminate her probation based on the fact that she complied with all of the terms of her probation which included paying the $1,980 fine and not violating any law,” district attorney’s spokesman Christopher Lee said in an email Friday.

Gray was charged in March 2011 with six felonies, including two counts of attempted grand theft, three counts of conspiracy to commit a crime and grand theft. She was one of seven current and former Sheriff’s Department employees who were indicted following investigations by two grand juries.

The other six defendants are: retired Capt. Hobart “Bart” Gray, who is Gray’s husband and the former commander of the sheriff’s Yucaipa substation, Lt. Russell Wilke, retired Lt. Bill Maddox, retired Assistant Sheriff Michael Stodelle, former Cpl. David Pichotta, and former training specialist Sallyann Christian.
