A judge in Luzerne County dismissed assault charges against Dupont Councilman Brian Nesgoda.

He was charged last month with assaulting his wife during an argument.

Monday Nesgoda’s wife, Tracy, asked the case be dropped and because she did not want to testify against her husband, the judge agreed to dismiss the charges.
