Benton Harbor The answer could come this week, as to whether a Benton Harbor activist will stand trial for alleged election law violations.

A preliminary hearing started Friday, during which it was decided that Benton Harbor mayor James Hightower will not face any charges.

Pinkney had accused Hightower of manufacturing evidence, that led to Pinkney being charged with five counts if election forgery.

Friday, a police forensic expert testified that some signature dates were changed, but said that there is no way of knowing who changed them or when.

The preliminary hearing is scheduled to resume this Thursday.
