Prosecutor first offered Defendant to plead to the charge with no jail. After negotiations, prosecutor offered Defendant to plead to the charge with HYTA status, which would preclude a public conviction record. After further discussions and reviewing of the police report, Prosecutor dismissed the case citing "unable to prove Defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt" as the reason.
