CHAMPAIGN -- An area man has been cleared of child abduction charges. A teenager told police she was picked up at Washington and Miller last week, then dropped off at Bradley and Prospect. The State's Attorney says she lied.

The girl told police 22-year old Kyle Allbright forced her into his car and made her perform a sex act. Police arrested Allbright Friday after interviewing witnesses and finding physical evidence.

But the Champaign County State's Attorney is not filing charges.

"The alleged victim had different accounts of the situation, then admitted that some aspects of the event were not true and the allegations were not supported by independent witnesses," said Julia Rietz.

There is no indication why the girl lied. Police said last week the two did not know each other and would not comment this week on charges being dropped.
