Sex charges brought against a Newport man last year have been dismissed.

According to court documents, the charges against Daniel Lee Peart Sr., 61, of Newport, were dismissed by prosecutors in Carteret County. He had been originally charged in March of 2013 with crimes against nature.

According to court documents, the reason for the dismissal was because there was insufficient evidence to warrant prosecution because the prosecuting witness (the alleged victim) failed to cooperate with the prosecution in the case.
