INTERLACHEN, Fla. – An 18-year-old Interlachen High School student arrested in February on charges that he had sex with a 12-year-old girl is no longer facing charges, according to court documents.

Roosevelt Richardson was initially charged with first-degree felony sexual assault, traveling to meet a minor and unlawful use of a communication device.

Court documents filed in mid-March show that the State Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Richardson on the charges.

No explanation was given for why the charges were dropped.
