The Allegheny County District Attorney's Office has dropped charges filed against a West Allegheny High School teacher who was accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.

The charges against William Morosetti, 28, who also served as assistant wrestling coach, were “nolle prossed,” meaning the district attorney's office decided to discontinue prosecution, court records show. The trial was scheduled to begin last Monday.

“We had some evidentiary issues,” Mike Manko, a spokesman for the district attorney's office, said Friday. “We had a victim who changed her story, which substantially altered the original facts of the case.” Manko did not elaborate.

Morosetti, of Coraopolis, was suspended without pay in January after he was accused of having a three-month sexual relationship with a female student before her graduation in June 2012. A district spokeswoman could not be reached for comment.
