TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped a sex crime charge against a former Shawnee County corrections officer.

Aaron Kalka was charged in March 2014 with one count of aggravated criminal sodomy of a victim younger than 14 by an offender older than 18.

A Shawnee County judge ruled earlier this month that recorded video and audio statements that Kalka made to law enforcement officers wouldn’t be allowed in court. The judge also determined that all polygraph-related evidence collected by a sheriff’s detective wasn’t admissible.

Prosecutors say that without the evidence, they had to dismiss the charge against Kalka, but reserve the right to refile.

Kalka’s defense attorney says the dismissal was the right decision.

Kalka worked with the Shawnee County Corrections Department between August 2013 and October 2014.
