Child Threat Charges Dropped Against Radio Host Star

star.jpgThe New York District Attorney’s office announced today that criminal charges filed against former Power 105.1 radio host Star (Troy Torain) will be dropped. Barbara Thompson, a spokesperson for the D.A.’s office, said that the charges will be nullified after six months, provided Star successfully completes three days of community service and stays away from the child who was the subject of his comments. Star was fired from the station in May, and subsequently arrested, after he directed racially and sexually charged threats at rival DJ Envy’s four-year-old daughter and wife, Gia Casey. At the time, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly suggested that the DJ’s on-air rant could possibly be considered a hate crime and instructed detectives to determine the nature of his threats towards Envy’s family. Star eventually apologized, and his lawyer Benjamin Brafman characterized his client’s remarks as “unsuitable and inappropriate.”
