Man Accused of Abusing a 13-Year-Old Went Free after the Prosecutor Came to Court Drunk
An Iowa man accused of sexual abuse of a 13-year-old has been freed after county attorney Michelle Murphy Rivera was arrested for being drunk in court. A judge in Clarke County dismissed the case, saying the defendant didn't get a trial within a year of his arrest - as mandated by Iowa's right to speedy trial law.
