PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) – A 25-year-old man will appear in court on Wednesday and learn that the first-degree rape, kidnapping, sexual abuse and fourth degree assault charges he once faced have been dismissed.

A Multnomah County grand jury voted on Tuesday to only charge Tavon Dorsey-Hurtt with one count of felony criminal impersonation of a police officer. His bail, which had been set at $762,500 has been lowered to just $5,000. He does remain in custody, but could be released on bail or upon a judge’s order.

Dorsey-Hurtt initially made his first court appearance on Aug. 26.

The Portland Police Bureau has not released any additional details about the case. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said that the case is still under investigation and additional charges could be filed at a later date.

An affidavit that spelled out some of the initial probable cause police had on Dorsey-Hurtt remains sealed.

KOIN 6 News will have more information on this story as it becomes available.
