A judge has dismissed domestic-violence charges against Larry Yarbray, Chester High School boys' basketball coach, after the woman he is accused of assaulting failed to appear in court to testify.
According to police, Yarbray was arrested last month after he allegedly hit his girlfriend and her son at her home in Brookhaven Borough, Delaware County.
Yarbray has maintained his innocence, said his attorney, William Davis.
When neither the woman nor her son appeared in court Thursday, a Magisterial District Court judge dismissed all the charges, a spokeswoman for the Delaware County District Attorney's Office said. Davis said the woman also failed to show at an earlier hearing.
