NASHUA — A local man accused of impersonating a police officer last year has had all charges dismissed.

Criminal charges against Michael Graham, 24, of 16 Van Buren St., were dropped last week, according to court records.

Graham was arrested in September after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by him. She told police that when a male friend came to pick her up after the incident, Graham pointed a gun at him, said he was a police officer and ordered him to leave, police said earlier.

Graham was charged with false impersonation, criminal threatening and two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. He was later indicted on all of the same offenses in November.

Last week, however, all of the charges against Graham were dismissed, according to a court clerk, who said the case is now closed.

Attorney Michael Davidow, a New Hampshire public defender, notified Graham on June 12 that Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office had dropped the charges.

“After reviewing the evidence for a final time and apparently speaking to both (alleged victims), Assistant County Attorney Lisa Drescher decided that she would no longer prosecute these charges,” Davidow wrote in a letter to Graham that was provided to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
