An Iowa State football player accused of breaching sports betting regulations is no longer facing legal action after the case was dismissed.
A judge in Story County granted a motion on Monday to dismiss a misdemeanor charge against DeShawn Hanika for tampering with records because the state dragged its feet. Prosecutors had 45 days to indict the accused after he waived a preliminary trial, per state law.
Hanika’s attorneys requested the dismissal after he was indicted on Sept. 28, four days after the Sept. 24 deadline had passed. The prosecutors agreed to dismiss the case.
