Charges dropped against Rodrique Welton

The state has dismissed charges against a man who had been accused of burglarizing the home of his ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend last fall and telling police the other man possessed child pornography.

Rodrique Alexander Welton had been charged with Class B felony burglary and Class A misdemeanor making a false report to law enforcement. Both charges have been dropped, according to a clerk at the Ward County Clerk of District Court Office on Monday.

Welton had been charged after his ex-girlfriend met with Welton at a local restaurant on Jan. 26 and she said he made admissions to her. The woman’s current boyfriend has never been charged.
