Drug charges reinstated for sister of Emanuel AME church gunman

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Richland County deputies say drug charges have been reinstated for the sister of Emanuel AME Church gunman, Dylann Roof.

Investigators say there was a paperwork mixup at the magistrates office with the summons and the charges for Morgan Roof were dropped because the prosecuting officer was not in court.

It's reported that the officer never received the summons because it was sent to the wrong person.

After discovering the mistake, the prosecuting officer moved to reopen the charges.

18-year-old Morgan Roof was arrested at A.C. Flora High School back in March after investigators say she was found with a knife and pepper spray on school grounds.

She was also charged with simple possession of marijuana.
