Phish bassist Mike Gordon can now breathe a sigh of relief. He is officially off the hook on the child-endangerment charges that were brought against him last month for taking a 9-year-old girl into an abandoned boathouse behind the Jones Beach Theater in order to take “art” pictures without her parents knowing.

On Friday, Gordon appeared before a judge in the District Court of Nassau County in Hempstead, New York. Acting on the district attorney’s recommendation the judge dropped the charges against him, according to VH1.com. 

"We immediately moved to dismiss the charges," said Rick Hinshaw, a spokesman for the Nassau district attorney. "While police had probable cause given the complaint, we didn't feel that there was substantial evidence to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt."

The parents of the girl declined to press charges against Gordon. 

Gordon issued a statement after the charges were dropped, "I'm glad all the charges against me have been dismissed and I can put this misunderstanding behind me. I'm grateful for the support I've received from my friends and family."
