The indictment against Cannon was for allegedly tampering with evidence that stems from a two month investigation in late 2007.
According to a letter sent to Eyewitness News, Cannon was under investigation for allegedly releasing a woman who was arrested following a domestic dispute.
She was released because she apparently knows Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman. Assault charges were later filed against that woman however, no indictments were handed down against anyone else within the Precinct 4 constables office.
Cannon lost his status with the police commission and is currently on desk duty.
A judge hopes to have jury selection seated by tomorrow morning.
