KY: 6-year-old's case dismissed

Good news from Autism Vox:

Criminal Charges Against Nathan Darnell Dismissed

Just up on WCPO news (Kentucky):

Public Defender Amanda Mullins asked that the charge be dismissed because of Nathan’s age and autism. "A child can’t participate in their own defense at six years old because they’re unable to answer questions or give me their version of the story accurately," Mullins said. The judge agreed...

"That's a relief."
