NH judge denies motion to dismiss sex charges against veteran

Robert Joseph Manship, a retired U.S. Air Force sergeant, claimed in his motion to dismiss the charges that the state no longer has pieces of evidence crucial to his defense, calling it an act of negligence by the prosecution. But the judge presiding over the case saw it differently, saying that the missing records were only a small portion of the investigation that led to the charges against Manship, and that the court found no culpable neglect on the part of the state.
