Sexual assault and false imprisonment charges against a New Mexico filmmaker have been dropped.
The Daily Times of Farmington, New Mexico, reports Colorado prosecutors decided not to pursue a sexual assault charge against Kody Dayish because authorities didn't think they'd get a conviction.
And a misdemeanor count of false imprisonment also was dismissed during a July 10 hearing.
But Dayish was sentenced on a class one misdemeanor count of telephone obstruction during the hearing in front of La Plata County Judge Dondi Osborne in Durango, Colorado.
Dayish, of Shiprock, New Mexico, is shooting a film about the Navajo Code Talkers of WWII.
The film will be shot entirely on the Navajo Nation and will feature mostly Navajo actors.
