Charges Against Autistic Child Are Dismissed

BROOKSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky judge has dismissed assault charges against a six-year-old autistic boy.

The child was charged with assaulting a teacher's aide in his Kindergarten class. Deputies say the aide told them she received bruises on her arm and an injury to her knee.

The local public defender asked all charges be dismissed because of the boy's age and autism.

The case was heard in Brooksville, which is in northern Kentucky, 39 miles southeast of Cincinnati, Ohio.
