Sexual assault charges dropped against Bennington firefighters

Posted: Updated:
BENNINGTON, Vt. -

Sexual assault charges against two volunteer firefighters in Bennington have been dropped -- at least for now.

Bryan Watson, 25, and Zachary Spaulding, 31, were charged in December after a 14-year-old girl told police she had repeated sexual relations with the men. Now prosecutors have dismissed the charges, saying that going forward with the case would not be in the best interests of the victim at this time. The cases could be brought again in the future.
