Jackson, WY (AP) - The human-trafficking case against a Jackson father and son is closed for now after prosecutors asked a judge to dismiss the charges.
Jose Marco Cesar Rosales Espinosa and his son, George Alberto Rosales, no longer face charges in a case that accused them of forcing illegal immigrants to give them their paychecks at the drywall company where both work.

Teton County deputy prosecutor Becket Hinckley says the investigation is continuing.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the men were accused of falsifying time cards and forcing crew members to work for far less pay than they earned by using threats of deportation.
