EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Evansville charges are dropped against an Evansville man arrested in a child sexual abuse case.
37-year-old Patrick Adams was arrested in January on two counts of child molesting.
Last week, the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office asked for the case to be dismissed.
But later, according to court documents, the Deputy Prosecutor in charge of the case changed his mind.
Adams’ defense team argued his right to a speedy trial was violated because of the mistake.
A Vanderburgh County judge dropped the charges.
Adams was released from jail Friday.
