CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A federal court has dismissed a criminal case against a former N.C. State football player who was accused of a money laundering-related charge.

U.S. District Judge Robert Conrad issued a written order earlier this month dismissing the charge of conspiracy to commit promotional money laundering against Eric Leak, according to court documents.

A prosecution motion preceding the dismissal noted that the court found that Leak's conduct didn't constitute a violation of the statute he was charged under.

Prosecutors had previously alleged that Leak bribed college athletes and their families to choose a company he owned that offered services including financial management to athletes.
