Eau Claire (WQOW) – Charges have been dismissed against a former Eau Claire daycare worker, accused of sexually assaulting a child in his care.

Tyler Thompson was charged with 1st degree sexual assault of a child in 2017.

Last year, Thompson pleaded not guilty to the charge.

A jury trial was scheduled to start next week. However, on Thursday, Judge John Manydeeds dismissed the case with prejudice, based on a state motion.

That means the case cannot be brought back to court.
