Police: Area man's charges dropped

Staff Report
The Daily Star

---- — No charges were filed against a Bainbridge man taken into custody on felony charges after the complainant was found to have made a false statement, state police at Sidney said Friday.

Contrary to an original June 7 report that Jordan M. Finch, 25, was arrested on a variety of charges, including four felonies, he was not arrested after  his accuser, Brandy L. Olmstead, 22, of Bainbridge, was charged June 8 with second-degree false sworn statement, troopers said.

All charges against Finch were dropped and he was released, but the information on the arrest report, which a story in the June 12 edition of the The Daily Star was based on, does not reflect that, troopers said. 

Olmstead was released to appear in Bainbridge Town Court on July 15.
