Abuse charge against lawyer dropped

A special prosecutor today nol prossed a charge of sexual battery against Roanoke lawyer David D. Lawrence.

Lawrence was charged in May with a misdemeanor count of sexual battery.  According to The Roanoke Times , the female victim alleged Lawrence forcibly groped her in an incident two months prior.

The prosecutor said she did not believe the commonwealth could prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  A substitute judge granted the motion to nol prosse.
