Prosecutors dropped charges against Robert Cosby Jr. on Friday, the son of former “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Mary Cosby.

Cosby Jr. was charged with two misdemeanor counts of providing shelter to a runaway and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to court documents. The case was dropped due to ‘witness issues,’ but no further information was provided.

Cosby Jr.’s mother is scheduled to appear in court in May, as she is also charged with two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and providing shelter to a runaway.

Cosby Jr.’s attorney, Clayton Simms, told FOX 13 the case came from a girlfriend who was at the Cosby home when police were called.

“Robert Cosby, Jr.’s criminal case was dismissed today. He only hopes that the dismissal of his case gets the amount of attention his getting charged received,” Simms said in a statement to FOX 13. “Most innocent people are eventually worn down by the system and take the prosecutor’s offer. Robert’s willingness to fight the case and maintain his innocence in the face of tempting favorable plea bargain is admirable. An innocent person should always fight for the truth. He’s thankful that his criminal case was dismissed.”
