OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) –
Charges have been dropped against a deaf church leader who is accused of molesting a church goer with disabilities.
Prosecutors are refusing to discuss the decision involving a convicted sex offender.
Rodney Sexton had been charged in Johnson County with aggravated sexual battery. Sexton was initially accused of molesting a 31-year-old man who is deaf and functions at the level of an 8-year-old child.
On Tuesday, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe dropped the charges against Sexton. This was just a day after Sexton made his first court appearance.
The mother of the 31-year old is furious at Howe and his office.
“Disappointed is way past the word,” the woman said. “We want action. We want somebody to take action.”
