Jonny Fairplay — one of the most notorious “Survivor” contestants of all time — is off the hook in his criminal case in Virginia … and he’s pretty stoked about it.
A Pittsylvania County court clerk tells TMZ … Fairplay’s larceny case has been dismissed as well as his mother’s case.
As we first reported … he was arrested for larceny back in December in his hometown of Danville, Virginia, where cops say he was accused of stealing furniture and a necklace from his grandmother, Jean Cook.
The criminal complaint was filed by Jonny’s aunt, who accused him of removing a leather chair, end table, bar stools and a silver necklace valued at $5,000 from his grandma’s home without proper consent.
Jonny tells TMZ … he was charged with grand larceny based off allegations from a disgruntled family member. He says the case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence.
BTW … the aunt is the daughter of Jonny’s grandma, the one he infamously pretended had died during that all-time notorious “Survivor” moment.
Bottom line for Jonny … he tells us he’s “disappointed that this ever was allowed to happen and relieved that it is over.”
The next family reunion is gonna be interesting.
