A group of suspected thieves and robbers known as the Stick up Kidz, or SUK Gang, may not be part of a corrupt organization.
A judge decided Tuesday afternoon to drop charges of corrupt organization against 25-year old Rashaad Jones and 20-year old Marquise Barnett.
They are two of nearly two dozen suspects accused of working together in a series of robberies and burglaries throughout Erie county, dating back to 2010.
Closing arguments in the trial are set to begin Wednesday morning.
Even without the corrupt organization charge, the men still face charges that include burglary, theft and conspiracy.
A jury is set to start deliberations on those charges by Wednesday afternoon.
