JENNINGS (KMOV.com) -

Jennings officials dismissed 12 of 19 counts of impeachment against Mayor Yolanda Fountain-Henderson Tuesday night.

Jennings officials met for three hours behind closed doors before announcing their decision.

Fountain-Henderson is accused of wrongdoing over a 9-month period including using city money to fix private property, accessing personnel records and towing cars in the city without notice.

She still faces charges of insurance fraud, refusing to work with the city clerk and city attorney.  The city council will hold more impeachment hearings Saturday.

Fountain-Henderson maintains she has done nothing wrong and attributes the impeachment proceedings to a vendetta by a few council members.
