A sex assault charge against a Solon Springs teen was dismissed Wednesday in Douglas County Circuit Court.
Erick James Gordon, 18, faced a single felony count of third degree sexual assault from an alleged incident in a Solon Springs tree house on Sept. 25.
District Attorney Dan Blank moved to dismiss the case based on evidentiary issues. The alleged victim of the attack testified during a preliminary hearing that she had been drinking prior to the incident, he noted, and there were other factors that made the case difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
Judge Kelly Thimm dismissed the charge with prejudice.
