THE BRONX - The case against an NYPD sergeant accused of having a sexual relationship with a minor has been dropped. 

Sgt. Vladimir Sosa, 38, was acquitted of rape, sexual misconduct and sex abuse charges after the district attorney's office decided to drop all charges against him.

His attorneys say they presented enough evidence to prosecutors which prove Sosa was innocent of the charges against him. 

According to his lawyer, the evidence includes a written affidavit, signed by the accuser, which stated she lied about her age and admitted to never having sex with a pastor and police officer. 

In addition, there were audio recordings which were handed over to the district attorney's office, which defense lawyers say claimed Sosa's innocence.

The DA's office sent out a statement saying, "There was not enough credible evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt."
