Confusion surrounds charges against BK teen

Misconduct charges against a Brooklyn teen that she thought were being dismissed may not be dropped after all.

Jiminez's lawyer say they were told Friday by an assistant Brooklyn district attorney that the misconduct charges were being dropped, but a judge Monday said he was unaware of those plans.
