Sexually-based charges against Nathan Dean Gregory Rounds were dropped Tuesday for lack of evidence.
"The case has been suspect from the start," Warren County District Attorney Rob Greene said. "The defendant was 12 years old at the time of the allegations, and the charges were not reported for years after." Rounds is now 22 years old.
"I could not in good faith prosecute because of details that can't be revealed in respect to the victim."
The charges were filed on Aug. 20, 2013 by Warren-based state police.
