Abuse Charges Dropped for Republican Delegate

I've been following this story for a while now. This Republican delegate, Rick Morris, from the 65th district in Suffolk Virginia, was arrested in September for multiple counts of physical abuse and domestic violence towards his wife and stepson. Now, after the judge blocked all media from being present in the courtroom, the charges were all dropped and the transcripts sealed. Hmmm. I'm guessing this seat will be open in November.
