- HOMER, Alaska (AP) - A judge has dismissed second-degree sexual assault charges against two Homer brothers accused of assaulting a 17-year-old boy with an object at a local drinking party in September 2012. Superior Court Judge Carl Bauman dismissed the charges against 22-year-old Anthony Resetarits and 19-year-old Joseph Resetarits on Wednesday. The case had earlier been scheduled for an Aug. 4 trial. Kenai District Attorney Scot Leaders says he intends to take the case back to a grand jury. The Homer News reports the brothers were accused of assaulting the boy after he passed out drunk. The boy also had his head and eyebrows shaved, and people wrote on him with markers. A boy who was 16 at the time also was charged with sexual assault and referred to the juvenile justice system.
