Charges have been dropped against a Piketon man who was indicted in February for 1st-degree aggravated burglary and 2nd-degree felonious assault. Defense attorney Chase Carter said the prosecution indicated the victim no longer wanted to pursue the case and that the charges had been dropped.

Dakota Lansing had been serving time in the Scioto County Jail on the allegation that he was involved in an assault in October of 2012, Carter said.
