The charges against another teen alleged to have burned a cross to intimidate a 14-year-old biracial girl last year have been dismissed.

Brandon Kersey, now 18, was accused of conspiring with three other Tuscola High School classmates to burn a cross where the victim, who was also a classmate, was spending the night with a friend in May last year.
