All charges dropped in Camden-Wyoming FC case

DOVER – Late last week all charges were dropped against a former Camden-Wyoming Fire Company board member regarding a board meeting on April 23.

A wiretapping charge and two invasion of privacy counts were filed against Christopher M. Dufresne, 35, of Camden, on Sept. 25 after Camden Police were contacted in May by a person whose name was redacted following the meeting, according to a probable cause affidavit. Mr. Dufresne entered not guilty pleas in the case.

On Friday at a Court of Common Pleas preliminary hearing before Judge Anne Hartnett Reigle, a nolle prosequi was entered by the prosecution without prejudice, ending the case.

A condition of no unlawful contact with the Camden-Wyoming FC for 12 months was also set.
Deputy Attorney General Kenneth Haltom represented the state, with attorney Zachary A. George representing Mr. Dufresne.

Camden Police declined comment and referred questions to the Delaware Department of Justice. DOJ spokeswoman Julia Lawes issued a statement that read, “The charges were nolle prossed after an assessment that there was likely insufficient evidence to meet the burden of proof.”
