DA drops gang rape charges against 5 teens
Prosecutors are dropping gang rape charges against five teens accused of assaulting a woman at gunpoint in Brownsville last month.
The woman initially told police that she was at Osborn Playground with her father in January when the teens, armed with a gun, raped her.
But now prosecutors say the woman recanted her accusations against the teens. She says she no longer wants to pursue charges.
The DA says the woman also declined to file charges against her father, who she was allegedly also having sex with.
