The wrong language on a true bill of indictment led to charges being dropped against an Oak Island man facing sexual offense charges.
Matthew Wayne Britt, 26, of 129 NE 23rd St., Oak Island, was originally indicted on three felony counts of sexual offense on a 13-year-old girl Oct. 26, 2009.
But district attorney Rex Gore said the proper charge was statutory rape because the alleged offense included sexual intercourse.
