Assault Charges Against Bonne Terre Man Dropped

A man from Bonne Terre that had been charged with first degree domestic assault after an altercation with his stepfather and mother in late August will not be prosecuted.

The Daily Journal reports that charges against 26-year old James Young have been dropped in St. Francois County Court.

Young had allegedly attacked his mother while under the influence of alcohol back in August, and was said to have attacked his stepfather too when he tried to intervene.

Young was previously being held in the St. Francois County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
