Prosecutors in Massachusetts have dropped a sexual assault charge against a Milton teacher's aide.
The Patriot Ledger reports the Norfolk District Attorney's Office has filed a court declaration saying it will no longer prosecute the case against John O'Connor, a teacher's aide at the Cunningham School in Milton.
The trial had been scheduled to start Monday in Quincy District Court but prosecutors say the victim, a kindergarten student at the time, has asked not to testify.
O'Connor has been on administrative leave since April 5.
