 FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) - The city of Ferguson and the Devin James Group officially parted ways Friday.  James had been hired to provide public relations for the city during the recent unrest.

However, the St. Louis County Economic Partnership that was footing the bill for his work in Ferguson terminated his contract after reports surfaced that James was convicted of reckless homicide in 2006.  James then did some work for free with the hope of winning a new contract with the city of Ferguson. In a statement released Friday the two sides decided to dissolve their working relationship after they could not reach agreement on that hoped-for contract.
