A Norman North High School wrestler who was charged with three counts of rape by instrumentation has had those charges dismissed, according to NewsOK.

From NewsOK:

"A juvenile petition against one of four former Norman North High School wrestlers accused of sexually assaulting two teammates has been dismissed, according to the teenager's attorney.

Attorney Elton Jenkins said Sage Griffen Gandenberger, 17, no longer faces three counts of rape by instrumentation stemming from allegations that surfaced a year ago that he and three other wrestlers had sexually assaulted two student wrestlers on a bus."

Gandenberger and three other Norman North wrestlers were charged with felony rape after allegedly sexually assaulting two other wrestlers on a bus about one year ago. Three of those charged were accused of raping a then-16-year-old and a then-12-year-old, and the fourth was accused of raping the then-12-year-old.
