BRICK, N.J. (AP) - A judge has dismissed all charges against the former superintendent of one of New Jersey’s largest school districts and his daughter after finding that prosecutors presented “untruths” to the grand jury that indicted them while excluding evidence.

State Superior Court Judge Patricia Roe also dismissed nearly all counts against two other school officials.

Ocean County prosecutors have said Brick Superintendent Walter Uszenski, his daughter, Jacqueline Halsey, and the two others conspired to obtain special services for Halsey’s son to which he wasn’t entitled.

The judge found the prosecutor who presented the case presented “untruths” and excluded evidence that the child did need such services.

A prosecutor’s office spokesman says they are assessing their options. The spokesman says they believe “there has been a violation of the law and we will aggressively move forward in our efforts to continue prosecution.”
