Stalking and sexual assault charges against Parisi are dismissed

Thursday, March 09, 2017

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office today filed the necessary document to drop all charges against Francesco Parisi.

Prosecutors dismissed the charges in the interest of justice. Specifically, thorough and diligent efforts to corroborate or verify a number of specific allegations against Mr. Parisi that were made to the Minneapolis Police Department and the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office were unsuccessful. Considering all of the evidence gathered during the course of the investigation, the charges are no longer supported by probable cause and dismissed.

We will have no further comment.
