Charges were dropped against Kevin Treseler, a Stonehill college student accused in March of raping an 8-year-old girl he was tutoring.

A grand jury did not indict Treseler after a hearing.

The Enterprise News has more:

The grand jury’s decision means the charges against Treseler, 21, of Millis, will not be prosecuted in court, said Bridget Norton Middleton, a spokesman for Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz.

[...]

Grand jury proceedings are secret and no reason was given for the failure to indict, Middleton said. Grand juries decide whether there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime.



Treseler was accused of raping a student he was tutoring as part of a federally subsidized work-study program. Treseler plead not guilty to the charges. He was suspended from Stonehill after the charges were announced.
