Those charges were dismissed on February 16, 2012. Unfortunately, the district court judge charged me with one assault on handicapped (misdemeanor). I have paid my debt through serving 18 months probation. There were no sex related convictions. Furthermore, I am doing better than I was when I was with the school system. Many of those who came against me in this case have suffered immensely.
