Man to be deported after false sexual assault charges dropped.
Sexual assault charges against a man set for trial were dropped in state Superior Court Friday after the complainant changed her story.
Henry Flores-Guardado, 37, had been charged with sexual assault of a spouse or cohabitor after the mother of his children told police he pinned her on their living room floor and forced her to have sex in June 2008.
"She maintained the allegations until, frankly, yesterday," said the prosecutor, Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Valdes.
She told an investigator for the defense that the entire story was false, Valdes said.
Judge Gary White dismissed the charges. But Flores-Guardado is being held and will likely be deported, Valdes said.
