A federal judge has dropped all charges against Douglas Perlitz, a Fairfield University alum who was charged with using his position as head of a youth charity organization he founded to prey on poor, homeless boys in Haiti. The story was reported on The Hartford Courant Website.

The judge dismissed the charges because the federal prosecutor brought the action in the wrong jurisdiction. The judge later agreed to delay dismissing the charges until July 23 in order to allow federal authorities to re-indict Perlitz, who will remain in custody, in another jurisdiction.
