OSWEGO, NY – This week, Oswego County Court Judge Walt Hafner dismissed the felonies against Richard, 28, and Katherine Graham, 26, the Oswego Town couple who were charged with starving their then 14-month-old twins.
The two felony counts of assault and reckless endangerment against the couple were dismissed; but, two misdemeanor counts each of assault, endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment weren’t.
The evidence against the Furniss Station Road couple was insufficient, according to the judge’s ruling.
Now, the district attorneyâ€™s office now has until May 10 to decide how it will proceed with the case.
The Grahams are free on $5,000 bail.
They still have custody of four of their children while the twins, now 23 months old, are in foster care.
