According to a spokeswoman for the CPS, "In this case, the withdrawal of key witnesses and newly discovered evidence meant that there was no longer a realistic chance of conviction. We have a responsibility to end the lawsuit given these facts. We have informed all parties of our choice.
Any prospective victims are always urged to come forward and contact the police, and we will file charges wherever the legal requirements are completed.
