Although occourts.org doesn't say WHY all charges were dismissed, the News-Tribune does:

[A] more sophisticated analysis by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department crime lab detected no GHB in the soap, officials said Monday.

Some other comments:

  • It was soap, despite allegations to the contrary.

  • Note that Margolin replaced the court-appointed defense attorney in the court records.

  • The mysterious Nikki Chambers stayed on the case, but was joined by Dennis Conway and Chris Kralick.

  • The motion for dismissal was listed with today's date, for what it's worth.

  • Note that ALL THREE charges were dismissed. The other two charges were misdemeanors, and apparently Cat Scandal was willing to be in the proximity of Giorsetti/Bolles. Plus, Orange County wanted to remove the egg on its face as soon as possible.

  • Aladdin Bail Bonds notes that Bolles is exonerated. Does Bolles get reimbursed? Do the reimbursed donations go to Escondido? (I don't think any of the PayPal people would necessarily want their money back, provided it went for a good cause.)
