Criminal case against Minnesota law professor Francesco Parisi falling apart

First, bail was reduced from $500,000 to $3,000, and now the criminal charges are about to be dropped.  I would imagine Professor Parisi will have a good defamation action against the accuser.  Do see the comments by the lawyer involved in the property dispute between Parisi and his accuser:   this lawyer "believes the criminal allegations were being used to defame and retaliate against Parisi."

UPDATE:  It's official, all charges against Parisi have been dropped, but not until he had to spend three weeks in jail!  Unbelievable, I imagine Professor Parisi will explore his legal options against the local authorities.
