Genesee County prosecutors agreed to drop the charge against 21-year-old Alicia Guastaferro during a court appearance, her attorney said. She still faces misdemeanor drug possession charges. She's due back in court on March 12.

Guastaferro was arrested in August with Rochester attorney James Doyle at an interstate travel plaza. Doyle was charged with soliciting a prostitute, but that charge was also dropped. He still faces a drunken driving charge. He and Guastaferro have pleaded not guilty.

Guastaferro and ABC settled a lawsuit last year over the "Wife Swap" episode she appeared on. She claimed its unfair portrayal of her as a spoiled 15-year-old made her a target of ridicule.
