Authorities have completed an investigation into a fetus discovered in a freezer in an Alpharetta townhome this summer.

"Based upon the findings of the investigation, no charges will be filed against anyone involved in this case," said George Gordon, spokesperson for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.

In his news release, Gordon said that after an exhaustive investigation, police determined the mother had a miscarriage in the second trimester of the pregnancy. A lack of money caused her next action.

She faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. Lasseter resigned from the Gwinnett Board of Commissioners the same day.
