Marcus Epstein is Free at Last

The saga of the Pat Buchanan and Tom Tancredo employee who pleaded guilty to a hate crime is over, for now.

At about 10 am on July 8th, in the District of Columbia Superior Court, Judge Anderson dismissed the case against Marcus Epstein, who had pled guilty to a class 6 felony hate crime; the prosecutor declined to continue sentencing. It was determined that Epstein, head of Pat Buchanan’s American Cause and executive director of Tom Tancredo’s Team America, had completed his sentence.

This paragraph isn't clear. Was the plea withdrawn or rejected by the court? Were the charges dismissed? Was the plea accepted? Was a conditional plea accepted in the past, and he had to complete testing, examination, community service, in order for the court to now decide to dismiss the charges?

I guess what I'm asking is, can we use the appellation: “Marcus Epstein, a felon who runs Tom Tancredo's Team America”? Or is it merely, “Marcus Epstein, who allegedly struck a black woman while yelling a racial epithet and who now runs Tom Tancredo's Team America”?

Check out the link, “much more about the case here,” above. All your questions will be answered. Mr. Epstein appears to be an extremely aggressive racist.
