KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A special prosecutor has been appointed to investigate allegations that a 14-year-old cheerleader was sexually assaulted by an older classmate who plied her with alcohol.
Daisy Coleman also alleges that a second 17-year-old boy recorded the January 2012 incident in Maryville using cellphone video.
Circuit court clerk Elaine Wilson says Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker has taken on the case.
Felony charges against both boys were dropped last year after Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice says Daisy and her family stopped cooperating with the investigation.
Melinda Coleman, Daisy's mother, says the family never stopped cooperating but looks forward to answering questions in a new review of the case.
