Orange County prosecutors said Wednesday that they have dropped six felony charges against a Newport Beach woman accused of facilitating a sexual relationship between her former fiancé and a 15-year-old girl.
Prosecutors dismissed charges against Michelle Hecker, 34, ranging from lewd acts upon a child to unlawful sexual intercourse, at a pre-trial hearing Friday at the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Drew Haughton said the victim stopped cooperating with authorities and she was the key to the case against Hecker. Without her help, Haughton said, what's left is mostly circumstantial.
