A criminal charge against Chris Hansen, the former host of NBC's "To Catch a Predator" franchise, has been dropped.
Hansen had been accused of ordering about $13,000 worth of promotional merchandise such as mugs and T-shirts and paying with a bad check.
However, that charge in a Connecticut court has been dismissed, NBC News reported, after Hansen paid his debt in full.
"This was an oversight. Chris has a really good reputation in this community; he's been here a long time," Hansen's attorney, Philip Russell, told NBC News. "As a practical matter, this case is in the dead letter office as of today. It won't be revived."
Hansen is facing other troubles, though. People reports his landlord tried to evict him, alleging nonpayment of rent. And Hansen's wife has filed for divorce, as well.
Hansen, 59, left NBC News in 2013, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
