Wednesday a federal judge threw out some of the charges against white supremacist leader Kevin Strom.

Strom was accused of trying to entice a 10-year-old girl by sending her gifts and flowers. He was also accused of stalking the girl and her family.

But after the prosecution rested on Wednesday the judge decided to dismiss both charges. One charge of enticing a minor and an obstruction charge after Strom was accused of trying to intimidate his estranged wife.

Attorneys were not available for comment. Strom still faces charges for possession of child pornography. The trial for those charges are scheduled for January.
