Drug charges have been dropped against the son of DuPage County state's attorney, Joe Birkett. Birkett's son Nicholas, 22, and two other men were charged with possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Naperville in May.

A judge dismissed the case against Birkett on the grounds that police failed to give him his Miranda warnings at the time of his arrest.

Charges against one of the other men with Birkett were dropped back in September.
