MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A former attorney for a Missouri boy accused in a sexual assault case involving a drunken 14-year-old girl says charges were dropped after the girl and her family refused to cooperate in the investigation.
The Maryville case is drawing new attention after The Kansas City Star published the results of a lengthy investigation on Sunday into what happened at a January 2012 party.
In a statement, attorney Robert Sundell says the girl and her mother refused to answer questions during a May 2012 deposition and later offered inconsistencies in another deposition.
Sundell said the boy cooperated with investigators and "freely admitted" to the sexual encounter. The attorney said while the boy's behavior might be reprehensible, it was not necessarily criminal.
The mother denies she and her daughter were uncooperative.
