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.
