Robert L. "Bob" Smith II has been acquitted from charges he stole thousands of dollars and products from Wendy's in Spencer. A Roane County jury declared Smith was a partner in the business with Ripley resident Dr. Randy Smith, which cleared the way for Judge David Nibert to enter an order for acquittal on the felony charges.

The case begin in 1998-99, when his partner (no relation) Dr. Randy Smith, a dentist, filed the charges. Both Smiths had been long-time friends.

Bob Smith says he now wants his ownership of the business restored, since Wendy's restaurants have been sold. Owner Dr. Randy Smith told his former partner he can have half the loss, since the businesses were not making money.
