Charges against religious leader dismissed

TRENTON, N.J. - September 29, 2008 - Brinson leads the "Brinson Memorial Church" in Trenton and uses the title of Bishop.

Brinson was arrested earlier this month for the sexual assault of a juvenile that police say Brinson picked up in Philadelphia and transported to his home in Florence, Burlington County.

The judge cited a lack of evidence in his decision.

The District Attorney's office says it was disappointed by the judge's decision, and was working on filing paperwork to re-arrest Brinson.
