OREGON – A sexual abuse case has been dismissed against a 31-year-old Dixon man who faced three charges involving a child younger than 13.

Lance E. Taylor, 31, had been accused of molesting the girl in a Rochelle home on two days in December, police said. Those charges of aggravated sexual abuse were dismissed Friday in Ogle County Court.

After being arrested on an Ogle County warrant on May 16, Taylor was held in Ogle County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
