Charges against four Attica prison guards have been dismissed by a Wyoming County judge.

Sergeant Sean Warner along with Officers Erik Hibsch, Keith Swack and Matthew Raddemacher faced multiple charges in connection with an alleged assault on an inmate. The judges decision was based upon issues with testimony provided to the grand jury by the medical examiner.

The case could be brought before another grand jury in the future.
