EL PASO - Newschannel 9 has learned that the sexual assault case against an El Paso police officer will not go to court.
Tonight, the district attorney's office confirmed that all charges have been dismissed against officer Mark Munoz. He was indicted last year, accused of drugging a woman and having sexual contact with her. His trial was set to start this Friday, but the DA's office has dropped the case.
Renee Railey, spokeswoman for the El Paso County District Attorney's Office said, "After careful review of the case, we dismissed the case because the evidence was insufficient to proceed to trial."
We also checked with the El Paso Police Dept tonight; Mark Munoz is still on the job as a police officer.
