Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the dismissal of the indictment against Crosley MacEachen (DOB 10/21/02). MacEachen was previously indicted for one count of Rape (F1), one count of Sexual Battery (F3), and one count of Gross Sexual Imposition (F4).

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters commented, “Information came to light after MacEachen was indicted that has changed our understanding of this case. This dismissal is not a comment on the guilt or innocence of MacEachen.

Our job as prosecutors is to seek justice. It is not to seek convictions.

We have an ethical obligation to only proceed on cases where we believe there is a likelihood of success at trial. Based on the information we have today, we will not be proceeding further.”
