Rochester City Court Judge Teresa Johnson has decided to dismiss the disorderly conduct charges against three Edison Tech varsity basketball team members who were arrested late last month.

Last week, Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley says she decided to drop the charges against the students. The students maintained they were just waiting for the bus, but police said they were blocking a sidewalk in front of a store.

The dismissal came after the story went viral and was picked up by national media outlets.
