Charges dismissed against Orland man

ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) - Multiple charges that had been filed against an Orland man have been dismissed.

Last month, the district attorney's office closed the case against 32-year-old Bryce Babson due to a lack of evidence.

Babson had been accused of crimes including gross sexual assault, domestic violence assault, and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to the Ellsworth American, Babson’s attorney "obtained additional evidence that significantly conflicted with the alleged victim’s statements."

Babson had also been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and obstructing the reporting of a crime, but now those charges are not being pursued by prosecutors.
