Durham County District Attorney Roger Echols said he dropped charges against three people accused of toppling a Confederate monument in downtown Durham in August.
Echols said he signed the dismissals against three of the 12 people charged in the toppling a couple weeks ago.
“There was no actual visual evidence or any type of evidence that they would have participated in the physical toppling or pulling down of the property,” Echols said.
The charges were dropped against Alexander Caldwell, Taylor Cook, and Myles Spigner, according to their defense attorney Scott Holmes.
