BRADENTON, Fla. -- Prosecutors have announced they have dropped one of the charges against three former school administrators involved in the Rod Frazier case.

The Bradenton Herald reports that the state attorney's office filed amended charges against Robert Gagnon, Matthew Kane and Gregg Faller. The misdemeanor charge of falsifying information to law enforcement has been dropped.

The three men are still facing a felony and misdemeanor charge of Failing to Report Child Abuse, which stem from an investigation into allegations that former Manatee High School football coach Rod Frazier inappropriately touched students and faculty.

Prosecutors say the three men knew about the allegations and failed to notify the state.

Frazier faces seven misdemeanor charges.
