D.A. dismissed from Valle sexual assault case

FRESNO, Calif.

Kings County Supervisor Richard Valle is charged with sexual assault on two women stemming from two separate cases.

Monday a judge dismissed the District Attorney's Office from the case saying there is a conflict of interest.

Valle's attorney had been trying to get the D.A.'s office removed from the case because of Valle's close relationship with the D.A.'s office as a supervisor.

The State Attorney General's Office is now prosecuting the case. Valle will be back in court next month.
