DENVER — A Denver District Court judge has dismissed charges against a Colorado Springs man accused of sending state Rep. Rhonda Fields sexually and racially offensive emails in February.

Prosecutors say Fields, a Democrat from Aurora, asked them to dismiss the case against Franklin Sain this week.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/kgovo5o ), Chief Deputy District Attorney Henry Cooper said Fields obtained a permanent protection order against Sain and felt her safety concerns had been met.

Sain was charged in February with harassment involving ethnic intimidation and attempting to influence a public servant. He told Denver police he sent Fields six emails filled with profanity and epithets and left similar voice mails between Feb. 13 and 15, during her efforts to tighten state gun laws.
