GREAT FALLS — Charges have been dismissed against one of two former Great Falls teacher's aides accused of abusing a 13-year-old autistic boy in a special education class.

District Judge Kenneth Neill on Thursday signed a motion to dismiss a felony charge of assault on a minor and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of children that had been filed against Kristina Kallies.

The motion called for the dismissal as part of a deferred prosecution agreement. The charges were dismissed with prejudice, meaning they could be refiled.

Kallies and co-defendant Julie Parish were accused of placing the boy's head under running water when he dozed off in class at North Middle School. Both denied the charges. Parish's trial is still scheduled for April.
