New developments in the case of a former Raleigh cross country coach accused of indecent liberties with a student.

Raleigh Police say the charges against Justin Scranton have been dropped. Scranton was charged last February after a report he acted inappropriately with a 17-year-old girl at Cardinal Gibbons High School.

Later a police warrant stated he acted inappropriately with the girl.

Now court documents show prosecutors have dropped indecent liberties charges against Scranton after the victim's family refused to cooperate.
