The Arkansas State Medical Board has lifted its suspension of a Flippin doctor's medical license after child pornography charges were dropped.

The board suspended Lee Gibson's license in February after he was arrested on charges of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child.

Marion County Circuit Court records list the charge as being dropped at the request of prosecutors on May 24.

Juli Carlson, an executive assistant at the Medical Board, said the board "dismissed the allegations" against Gibson at its meeting Thursday.

A notice on the board's website listed the license suspension as being lifted effective Monday.

Prosecuting Attorney David Ethredge didn't return phone calls and an email on Monday seeking information on why the charges were dropped.

Kevin O'Dwyer, an attorney for the Medical Board, also didn't return a call seeking comment.
