Charges dropped in Easton Legion shooting
After the alleged victim recanted his story, Northampton County prosecutors dropped all charges Monday against Rashad E. Jones, 28, of Easton, who was accused of shooting and wounding another man May 20 in an American Legion post in the city. Assistant District Attorney Abraham Kassis said authorities believe they arrested the right person, but given the victim’s unreliability, could not go forward with the prosecution. What’s next? Attempted murder and other charges were dismissed.
