West Virginia: All sexual abuse and assault charges against a priest from Cincinnati who was expected to go on trial Monday have been dropped.
Reverend Robert Poandl was indicted on the charges in February.
According to Roane County Prosecutor Josh Downey, the judge dismissed the case late Friday afternoon. The judge ruled there were discovery issues that related to the medical records of the victim. The charges cannot be refiled in Roane County, according to the judge's ruling. The state now has 90 days to decide whether it wants to take the case to the West Virginia Supreme Court
