Brown was charged in a Nov. 1996 indictment with one count of sexual assault and one count of sexual abuse. His 6-year-old stepdaughter is named in the complaint. Brown's attorney, ,Joe Aucremanne, questioned the girl's truthfulness and ability to understand the consequence of the allegation. Family court records, also, seemed to question the girl's competency, he argued during a day long hearing earlier. After hearing the defense evidence, County Prosecutor Mike Turner said he asked the court to dismiss the charges because, if it went before a jury, it did not appear:: to him that the case "was winnable."
