All charges dropped against Mohlers

Roland Mohler

All charges against five Missouri men accused of molesting young relatives decades ago have been dismissed.

Lafayette County Prosecutor Kellie Wingate Campbell told the Associated Press the issue surrounding the case against Burrell Mohler, Sr., and his four son was not whether she believed the allegations, but whether she could prove them beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.

Mohler, Sr. and his four sons, Burrell Jr., David, Jared and Roland, were charged in November 2009 with dozens of rapes and other brutal sex acts after five young relatives came forward with their claims.
