Small, 23, tossed eight voter registration forms into a dumpster in October 2012, when he was working to register voters on behalf of the Republican Party of Virginia. Though the felony charges of failing to disclose voter registration applications have been dropped, Small is still facing four misdemeanor counts of destruction of voter registration applications and one misdemeanor count of obstruction of justice.
