The Suffolk County District Attorney's office said today it has dropped charges against a man charged with a February rape because of "a continued investigation that developed evidence to sugest he was not the assailant."
The man was arrested while playing basketball at a North End community center after the victim saw him and called police.
Th DA's office said a GPS monitor showed he had nothing to do with a similar rape a month later. Also, his phone showed no evidence of the photos the victim said her rapist took after he was done. And investigators confirmed his alibi for the night of the attack.
The DA's office says the "nolle prosequi" filing does not say anything about the woman's veracity, tthat prosecutors believe her story and that she acted in good faith when she IDed the man.
