A sex-crime charge against a 36-year-old Lawrence man was dismissed Friday by prosecutors after the victim was “deemed unavailable,” said a spokeswoman from Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson’s office.
The man was arrested in August after Eudora police investigated an alleged incident involving a 15-year-old child.
Prosecutors had charged the man with one count of indecent liberties with a child, as well as two counts of breach of privacy, or “entering with intent to listen surreptitiously to a private conversation in a private place or to observe the personal conduct of any other person.”
The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning prosecutors could later re-file charges.
Eudora police have said the alleged victim and suspect knew each other.
