A Northern California judge has dismissed criminal charges against the founder of a startup tech company who was arrested and charged last year with assaulting and sexually abusing a toddler.

Zain Jaffer, the founder of mobile advertising company Vungle, said Monday that he was grateful to the San Mateo County district attorney’s office for taking a closer look at the evidence and requesting that the case be dismissed.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said he sees the dismissal as evidence of the judicial system working as intended.
